In the month of December here at Calvary Robotics we hold our annual Grazing Day. Grazing Day is when the employees bring in a dish to share with their fellow employees. Then to add to the already abundant food Calvary hosts a catered lunch, needless to say, everyone wakes away full. Here’s to another delicious Grazing Day in the books!

Pack 463 from Plank South Elementary School visited Calvary Robotics. A mix of both Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts came to learn about Engineering. In addition to learning about Engineering, there was a focus on levers and how they can affect everyday life. It is important to realize that this is part the Boy Scouts of America's STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) initiative. In support of this initiative, the Nova Awards Program was developed. In fact, throughout the program Scouts work with a mentor to explore different aspects of the STEM initiative. Notably, the Nova Awards Program starts with the basics and moves towards more complex. As a result, all this helps the Scouts learn, discover and prepare for the future.
Boy Scouts of America
To emphasize, according to The Boy Scouts of America's website the organization "is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations, providing programs for young people that build character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
For more than 100 years, Boy Scouts of America has helped build future leaders by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun.
Scouting is a year-round program uniquely designed to meet the needs of youth and their families. The program offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. Family involvement is an essential part of the program, and parents are encouraged to play an active role in making the most of the short time they have to impact the lives of their children. Scouting is designed to be experienced outdoors. Hiking, camping, mountain biking, skateboarding, BMX, mountain climbing, kayaking, whitewater rafting—these are just some of a Scout’s outdoor experiences."
