AIMS@UNM team wins STEAM Hack-A-Thon

bright spotA team of six AIMS@UNM charter school students recently won first place in the annual STEAM Hack-a-thon competition sponsored by the Directed Energies Professional Society.

The students were given a box of random material and had to build a Rube Goldberg machine to pour marbles into a bowl. Competing against other Albuquerque high schools, the winning AIMS@UNM team won $1,000 for the school’s science department.

The AIMS@UNM team was sponsored by Leidos, a large directed energies research firm, who provided them with their fancy t-shirts. They had a chance to eat lunch with several of the Leidos engineers who were impressed with how the students conducted themselves in a professional environment and how intelligent they were in conversation.
