Techy trip


The Bellefontaine Examiner accompanied 31 members of the Bellefontaine Middle School TECHFIT Team and their advisers Nicole Winhover, Jordan Reser, Joanna Reser, Cheryl Poppel and Sandi Chervenak to a competition at Purdue University this month. The local students received first place out of eight teams from Ohio and Indiana, as previously reported in the Examiner. Participants showcased their “exergames” that they created by utilizing various computer programs and applications. Before the after school program began this fall, several BMS staff members teachers attended a training session during the summer at Purdue for TECHFIT, which stands for Teaching Engineering Concepts to Harness Future Innovators and Technologists.
