Students from the Mendon-Upton Regional School District showcased their work at the recent One8 Applied Learning Conference on May 10. Talented young minds from Miscoe Hill Middle School and Nipmuc Regional High School presented their projects in robotics, computer science, and project-based learning.

This prestigious event, hosted by the One8 Applied Learning Hub, served as a platform for students across the region to exhibit projects demonstrating real-world applications of classroom theories. Most significantly, student teams each had a table to present their project to more than 500 industry professionals, who circulated and talked with presenting student groups — offering them verbal and written feedback.  

The conference featured a variety of innovative projects focusing on how applied learning can significantly improve education.

“Our students have worked incredibly hard on their projects, and this conference is a fantastic opportunity for them to showcase their skills, learn from their peers, and receive professional feedback,” said Maureen Cohen, Superintendent of the Mendon-Upton Regional School District. “We are proud to participate in such a dynamic event that celebrates the creativity and ingenuity of students.”

The Mendon-Upton students’ presentations included robotic mechanisms designed by the robotics team, software programming projects from the computer science classes, and comprehensive solutions developed through project-based learning initiatives. These projects reflected the students’ technical skills and ability to think critically and solve complex problems.
