UrbanPromise Academy's newest extracurricular activity is a school-wide robotics club. Using the fundamentals of math, science, and technology, students are building autonomous robots during the club's twice weekly meetings. They'll begin competing with their creations against other area schools in the coming weeks. Pictured are several club members constructing the robot "chassis"--or base--of their first robot, which they've named "Domo-Inferno."
Each grade at UrbanPromise Academy (UPA) has selected a particular charity or cause to support for the 2012-2013 academic year. Several students and staff participated in October's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk at Cooper River.
In addition to the fight against breast cancer, UPA students have chosen to support Unicef, a Malawian student's education, and the South Jersey Food Bank. Keep up the good work!
