Annual HCS Technology Fair sees participation from over 1,200 students

The annual technology fair hosted by Horry County Schools in Myrtle Beach was a showcase of creativity and innovation, as over 1,200 students from 53 schools participated. The event featured projects related to robotics, Rubik’s Cubes, drones, and esports. More than 700 projects were submitted for STEM competitions, and over 120 volunteers helped out and judged the entries.

One project that stood out was created by second-grader Abraham Shelton, who built a robot called Robotic Genius in just three months. The robot can move by itself using measurements and Bluetooth programs, and Shelton plans to continue building more robots in the future.

Horry County Schools Digital Communications Coordinator Ashley Gasperson founded the event with a passion for technology. She expressed her excitement for the fair as it provides students with important life skills such as communication and problem-solving. The students’ talent and hard work were on display at the fair, and it was evident to see the community’s support and encouragement for their projects.

Leaders at Horry County Schools mentioned the incredible growth of the fair over the years and hinted at possible expansion to state-level competitions in the future. Keep updated with WMBF News for any developments regarding this exciting event. Copyright 2024 WMBF. All rights reserved.
