New 'Promise' video debuts on Glencoe HS robotics team
Tuesday, September 13, 2016
A new video highlighting Glencoe High School's (Hillsboro School District) robotics team debuted today on "The Promise of Oregon" website at www.promiseoregon.org.
Team Shockwave from Glencoe High has ranked among the top teams in the Pacific Northwest and the nation. The video, which shows how students' interest in robotics is leading them on career paths, can also be seen on YouTube.
The Glencoe video is the last of four videos for 2016 showcasing cutting-edge programs – science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), CTE, the arts and more. The videos encourage schools and the public to "dream bigger" about what is possible in Oregon's schools.
The "Promise" campaign, which is being run by the Oregon School Boards Association, aims to create a groundswell of public support for K-14 education, in hopes of meeting Oregon's 40-40-20 goals and lifting student achievement and graduation rates.
OSBA is a member services organization for more than 200 locally elected boards serving school districts, education service districts and community colleges. It also provides services to charter schools and their boards.
