STEAM Challenge #2 – Engineering a Mars Lander

Congratulations Buccaneers on an Excellent STEAM Challenge #2!

The Results are in! In real life, only 40% of all missions to Mars have been successful, but at Southwest Middle School, our survivability was much higher. Based on 18 advisory classes reporting, the survivability rate for our school was 69.26%, and each group, on average spent $1,676,622.22 of the allotted $2M budget.  Congratulations to Ms. Alcanero, Mrs. Barrón, Mr. Fuentez Jr., Ms. Jaime and Ms. Perez’s Advisory Classes for landing 100% of your rovers safely!

Congratulations Ms. Jaime’s Advisory for having the 2nd lowest average budget, at $1.3M,  with 100% of your rovers making it safely; Ms. Robinson with a budget of $1,282,500 and a 75% survivability rate; and Mrs. Barrón’s Advisory for keeping your average budget at less than $1.5M. Great job Engineers, you should feel proud!

Southwest Middle has an online spirit store!

Our ASB has partnered with one of our local businesses, A&M Team Sales, to have an online store for our SOM gear.  Most of these items are different from our physical ASB Student Store.  Our ASB will be receiving profit from each item purchased.
Please note the following regarding our online store sales:
2.  Online store will be open for 2 weeks (note the Deadline date at the top of the website page).  After it closes, A&M will be producing the items purchased/ordered and shipping them and/or delivering them to the school (which ever you choose for delivery).  The store will reopen after 2 weeks for another 2 weeks.
3.  No personalization.  Items are as is.
4.  There will be no refunds or exchanges for items ordered.  If there is a mistake on your order, however, please contact A&M Team Sales.
