2018-2019

Young Carer Tyreece went to Rotary club of Falkirk to do a presentation about his voyage with Ocean Youth Trust Scotland. The Rotary club of Alloa went along as well to give him a chance to thank them both for funding the life changing voyage that the young carers went on last summer. Tyreece absolutely blew us away with his speech about Young Carers.

Sunnyside Primary School

Today, four Alloa Rotarians paid a visit to Sunnyside Primary School, to meet the children who will shortly represent their school at Lego League in Glasgow on 10th December.  They call their competition project SOLAR which stands for Sunnyside Oxygen Laboratories And Robotics.  Using Lego to build their robotic equipment, they write computer programmes to instruct the machines to carry out tasks.  They are working to solve the problem of providing water and oxygen for people working in space.  Could the best solution be condensed breath, recycled urine or maybe extracting water from comets or meteors? They are also considering the emotional and mental health issues of space isolation and confined living space.

Their teacher, Mr Mathis, told the Rotarians that the school is to have a visit soon from someone from NASA who will be able to tell the children about his real life experience of solving such problems.

 

Alloa Rotary presented a cheque for £200 to the robotics club to help with the cost of their travel to the competition and wished them every success.
