Of the five students who qualified for the second phase of the Puerto Rico Math Olympics to be celebrated in November of this year at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguéz Campus, four are current members of the IT Club. Coincidence? Maybe. Anyway, here’s hoping they will shine again and proudly represent their school colors! ~~LMMolina, Club Adviser
Another year with the IT Club draws to a close. It’s been an educational one with all the discussions we had on a variety of topics.
A new staff was elected: Kevin as president, Gabriel as vice president, and Ángel as administrative assistant. Hope next year is as enlightening as this one!
Thanks to Vincent for a job well done as past president. Best wishes for a bright future!
After the meeting, Gaming Session #14 was held. We couldn’t finish the school year without one last session before the summer vacation begins. Hope everyone had a good time. ~~LMMolina Club Adviser
Another interesting meeting, this time on the topic of animation.
Club members enjoyed watching the YouTube video on “Flipnotes from Dsi in 4K”! Check out their reaction: Video
They also tried their hand at some basic principles of animation: hand drawing. ~~LMMolina, Club Adviser
3-D printers have been around since the 1990’s but it’s industrial use has increased since then. The past meeting was on 3-D printing as it relates to the human body. Will 3-D printing evolve in such a way that it may save a life by repacing a damaged human organ? It was an interesting discussion as usual! Check out the video. ~~LMM, Club Adviser
Cruelty free meat? What an interesting and very thought-provoking topic for our 12th meeting of the school year!
Is this the way we’ll go in the future? Will this solve world hunger? How does it affect the agricultural community, and in particular those who handle farm animals? The arguments for and against were brought to the table. It was definitely a lively debate at this meeting! Looking forward to the next one! Be sure to check out the calendar on this page for future Club activities.~~LMMolina, Club Adviser
Club members at this meeting tried their hand at game design. In groups of three they had to decide who would (1) create the level (2) create the character and (3) make the story.
Some interesting designs were “started.” Given more time, they would have come up with some really cool stuff!
Check out this video on a young woman as a video game designer. ~~LMMolina, Club Adviser
Our club members at work on their designs:
Next gaming session: Tuesday, February 19th
Next club meeting: Wednesday, February 27th during the lunch period
