Clancy & Theys partners with Reedy Creek Magnet Middle School to expand after-school robotics program
Clancy & Theys will partner with Reedy Creek Magnet Middle School in Cary for the 2017-2018 school year, to expand the after-school robotics program. As a Robotics Club Sponsor, Clancy & Theys supports the students’ use of important STEM skills, as well as critical thinking and problem solving, to design, build and program their own robots from scratch.
During the 2016-2017 school year, Reedy Creek teamed up with Cyberkids Robotics to offer FIRST LEGO League (FLL) and FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Robotics teams to its middle school students. The school competed against 20 other teams in RoboWake 2017, a local CyberKids event, earning the First Place Teamwork Award as well as the Overall Champions Award.
The partnership with Clancy & Theys will allow Reedy Creek to expand the after-school robotics program and continue its success. In addition to competing in FLL and FTC, Reedy Creek plans to add a CyberDrones team to its roster this year.
Harry McKinney, Clancy & Theys’ Director of Virtual Design and Construction, has teamed up with Reedy Creeks’ engineering and design faculty to create design lessons and modules for the program’s students. Together, they will lead students in an exploration of their own school building, while focusing on 3D modeling.
Through the after-school robotics program, students are exposed to the fundamentals of robot programming and emerging robotics technologies. Reedy Creek and Clancy & Theys hope to teach students real-world problem solving and applications of robotics technology.
The Christ Church project team receives the Rehabilitation / Historic Preservation Award at the 2017 Sir Walter Raleigh Awards for Community Appearance
At the 2017 Sir Walter Raleigh Awards for Community Appearance on September 6, Clancy & Theys was honored to be a member of the project team which received the Rehabilitation / Historic Preservation Award for its work on the Christ Episcopal Church addition and renovation. Vice President of Construction Baker Glasgow and Director of Business Development Matt Chambers were present to watch members of the Christ Church Building Committee accept the award.
Located across the street from the State Capitol, Christ Church was founded as Raleigh’s first Episcopal church in 1821 and its sanctuary is one of three National Historic Landmarks in the city. Clancy & Theys started the church’s renovation and expansion project nearly two years ago, including expanding the parish hall and creating a larger entrance and gathering space. The Clancy & Theys project team included Baked Glasgow, Project Manager Tom Clancy, General Superintendent Alan Brinson and Superintendent Randy Wood.
As stated by the Raleigh Appearance Commission, the Sir Walter Raleigh Awards for Community Appearance recognize outstanding new contributions to the character, environment and appearance of the City of Raleigh. Specifically, the Rehabilitation / Historic Preservation Award is given for preservation or rehabilitation of existing buildings, especially Raleigh’s historic resources.
Since 1983, the Commission has presented more than 200 Sir Walter Raleigh Awards to developers, designers, building owners, community groups, civic clubs, churches, and citizens.
