Mr. K’s CIM (Computer Integrated Manufacturing) class is beginning to test their very own robots. Although the class is relatively small, this CIM class is accomplishing major feats.

After a few weeks of designing and learning basic coding, the class has finally begun to put together their own robots. The class uses a preset VEX robotics kit for constructing these robots and they run on a basic program, RobotC.

WIRED IN, CIM student, senior Dan Sounik works on programming his robot.

Students get to enjoy the experience of problem-solving with freedom. Currently, the task of their robots is simply to follow a black line on the floor. The only hitch is that the robots must accomplish this basic task alone with a preset program and design from the students’ groups. The class has taken to creating several unique robots in their groups and have been testing their designs.

PROUDLY POISED, CIM student, senior Justin Fish is ready to test his robot.

All of the students were thoroughly involved in their group work and excited to be working. When asked about the class experience, senior Chris Toth said,”It’s a good class and I’m excited to come in every day.”

READY FOR ACTION, CIM students, seniors Nick Guimond and Chris Toth’s robot is fully assembled and operational.

BPHS is home to many hidden gems, such as this class. Hopefully, more students will think about taking classes like this one in years to come.

The YMCA ice rink is where you can find the ice hockey team’s three-year varsity starter Nick Guimond, aka Nicky G. Nick is a senior and this is his second year writing for Hawk Eye, the online newspaper. He hopes to bring a strong influence to this year’s sports articles, by leading the new writers in the right direction.

When asked if there was anything else he hopes to contribute, Nick simply said, “My man Mullen and I are going to be making The Hawk Seat better than ever this year with insanely cool videos.”

Speaking of which, The Hawk Seat is currently in the market for one new member, after losing senior anchor Gavin Campbell.

In the future, Nick plans on attending college and has high hopes to play ice hockey at the collegiate level. Once at college, he wants to pursue being a mechanical engineer because of his extreme skill in mathematics.

When it comes to superpowers, it is a clear decision for Nick, as he wants to be just like his favorite superhero, The Flash. With this being said, having super speed would be the most appealing to Nick.

“The great white north or should I say, Canada, is always calling me back every time I think of where I would like to go for my dream vacation,” Nick said in response to the question about his dream vacation.

But if he had the opportunity for a dream date, Nick likes to keep it simple.

“A nice long walk on the beach would set the mood just right.”
