On Tuesday, May 17, groups from both BRMS and CHMS attended ROOTS (Reaching Out On Technology & Science) at Champlain College. In addition to enjoying breakfast, snack and lunch with about 144 fellow Vermont middle schoolers, students attended 3 sessions throughout the day related to either technology, science, or math (or a combination of each). There were a variety of interesting topics, including Mobile Forensics, Arduinos, Cars of the Future, Graphic Effects in Video Games, Unseen World of the Human Body, Game Show Mathematics, and many more.
