As part of the LEGO League competition hosted this year in Alamogordo, elementary and middle school children came from around the state to kick off the first portion of the competition, the creation of a LEGO robot.
The Holloman 49ers, from Holloman Middle School, moved on to the next portion of the competition with their design of a solution to a current scientific question or problem. The group of 9 students focused their attention on Alameda Park Zoo. The students designed a system to bring the zoo into the 21st century, with the hopes of engaging more young learners like themselves.
To supplement the aging animal information signs at each exhibit, the students created QR (Quick Response) codes which, when scanned with a smartphone, link to a website full of pictures and interesting facts about the animals. The students, knowing that many children their age are more interested in technology than learning, wanted to give their phones an educational purpose at the zoo and make learning fun.
The students, with their teacher, Mrs. Dakota Davis, are currently working with Zoo Director, Bud Wiser, and animal keeper, Nicole Adams, to implement this cost-effective and innovative system. They hope to have it ready for public use by summer 2017.
The City of Alamogordo would like to strongly encourage motorists travelling on South Florida to take the detour at Mimosa Avenue to Playa Azul Street to Washington Avenue rather than taking the Arapaho Trail due to increased congestion in the area.
Please also note that there are no left turns onto First Street from Arapaho Trail and violators will be given citations. The detours and construction in the area will be ongoing for three months. Motorists are advised to use extreme caution in this area.
CITY ANNOUNCES ADDITIONAL STREET CLOSURES FOR FIRST & FLORIDA PROJECT
The City of Alamogordo announces that additional lane closures will be implemented for the Realignment of Florida Avenue at First Street project. On Monday, February 27, 2017, the outside eastbound lane of First Street will be closed with eastbound traffic moved over to the inside lane next to the median.
In early March, the outside westbound lane of First Street will also be closed to allow for some short-term utility work. Once this utility work is complete, all traffic will be moved over to the westbound lanes, with one lane for each direction, and both eastbound lanes will remain closed.
Motorists are advised to use extreme caution in this area and are encouraged to plan an alternate route.
Project questions or issues may be directed to the Project Manager, Nancy Beshaler, at 575.439.4230 or via email at email@example.com.
