Congratulations, students, on such a wonderful end to the Coding for Global Goals venture. I'm proud and happy to share that each student that started a micro:bit project finished their project, and submitted it to the do your :bit competition. There were some really wonderful student inventions that addressed the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
At Compass, community connections provide jumping off points for our students to explore and engage in real world learning. These connections are invaluable to us. Today we highlight Dynamic Group Circuit Design in Fort Collins. Senior Electrical Engineer, Adam Bierman, has given generously of his time to help Compass students take a computer build from concept to completion.
It's full steam ahead for the Compass Community Collaborative School LEGO Robotics Club. This year, for the FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge, students have been tasked with stepping into the world of sports, play and fitness—moving, collaborating, competing and celebrating.
Math and technology classes at Compass in Fort Collins are not only rigorous, but productive, creative and joyful. Our technology program is for students who enjoy tackling real issues in the world, using their creativity to really make the world a better place.
There's a new 3D gadget in the Compass Design Lab and we can't wait for you to try it. The X-Carve machine is one of the new tools that is revolutionizing digital fabrication. With this 3D carving device, students can bring endless ideas to life.
Today, our school’s enjoy touch screen televisions with built in web browsers and wireless keyboards to control that technology from anywhere in the room, and there are more colors available than our eyes can even see!
Congratulations to the Compass students who competed at the regional Colorado Science and Engineering Fair last Wednesday! Everyone brought home an award, which is particularly awesome ESPECIALLY for first-time contestants.

Twenty students from 8th-11th grade went to Colorado State University on Thursday for most of the day to learn first hand about the computer science department and unique opportunities offered for CS majors.
Compass has qualified for the Silver Level of the National Math Club, and will move on to consideration for Gold! Over a dozen students have contributed to the group’s efforts, with our official MathCounts team of Clara, Dylan G., Finn, and Jaden meeting four days per week to work on math problems.
Congratulations to the Compass FIRST Lego League teams for a fantastic season. During first quarter, these students learned together in a Robotics venture, and then they continued as an intensive class during second quarter to prepare for competing.
