Annual HCS Technology Fair sees participation from over 1,200 students

Horry County Schools hosted the 15th annual technology fair in Myrtle Beach, with over 1,200 students from 53 schools participating. The event showcased projects related to robotics, Rubik’s Cubes, drones, and esports. More than 700 projects were submitted for STEM competitions, with over 120 volunteers helping out and judging the entries.

One standout project was created by 2nd grader Abraham Shelton, who built a robot called Robotic Genius in just three months. The robot can move by itself using measurements and Bluetooth programs, and Shelton plans to continue building more robots in the future.

She expressed her excitement for the fair as it provides students with important life skills such as communication and problem-solving. The students’ talent and hard work were on display at the fair, and it was evident to see the community’s support and encouragement for their projects.
