Science WinnerCongratulations to 7th grader Siroun Johnson, who won the top prize at the Massachusetts Middle School Science & Engineering Fair on Saturday, June 3rd, in Worcester.  

Siroun is a student at the Amigos School and this year she learned to program in Python and applied that knowledge to control a robotic arm to draw different figures. The name of her project was "Algorithm for Accurate Control of Low-Cost Joint-Based Robots."

During this process, Siroun was mentored by Lujing Cen, a computer science major at MIT and Hannah Sevian, a chemistry professor at UMASS Boston. Siroun expanded her knowledge of coding at The Flagship Clubhouse at the Museum of Science, which provides access to the latest technology, so youth can explore their own ideas and develop new skills.

We are all so proud of her hard work and amazing accomplishments.
