On November 16, 2014 the RoboCobras participated in the First Lego League qualifier tournament at Vacaville High School in Vacaville, CA. The competition which teaches students team building skills and STEM skills (science, technology, engineering, math) is broken up into four parts- project presentation, core values exercise, robot design and robot matches. Throughout the event our team had a fun, exhilarating and challenging experience and while they were not among the top three teams to move on to the next round, they did win an award for their project.
For this year’s project theme “How can you improve the way people learn on a subject matter”, the RoboCobras decided to research and find an innovative solution to how kids can learn to clicker train their dogs. Their solution of creating a comic strip impressed the judges and won our team 1st place for Project Award.

FAMM Gets Ready For College
College and career readiness has become a key priority for the MLK community. At King Middle School, we realize that we must provide our students with a wide array of services and support to help them meet their educational goals. Currently in the third year of existence, the Fun and Motivated Minority (FAMM) program at MLK, is making huge strides in preparing students for college and careers. College visits are important for FAMM students to gain awareness of the A-G college entrance requirements and for these students to learn about course selection in high school. On October 3rd FAMM took an educational trip to the lovely campus of UC Berkeley. Students were able to visit the 3-story library and several of the colleges that make up the university. FAMM students were exposed to the diverse world of what Berkeley as a university and city have to offer. Destiny Jackson observed, “One of my favorite parts of the tour was when we stood in the middle of the stadium in a half circle, and when we spoke it sounded like we were talking to the whole entire stadium.” Mauricio Palma said, “I learned that there are many majors to choose from. I love Cal Berkeley...GO BEARS.” Finally, Tony Reyes revealed, “I loved the school. I WILL graduate from Cal.” Overall it was an amazing experience for all the students and one that will be repeated at many other college campuses throughout the year.
