Horry County Schools hosted its 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 to the STEM competitions, and over 120 volunteers assisted and evaluated the entries. One of the standout projects was created by 2nd grader Abraham Shelton, who built a robot called Robot Genius in just three months. The robot can move on its own using measurements and Bluetooth programs, and Shelton plans to continue building more robots in the future.

Ashley Gasperson, digital communications coordinator for Horry County Schools, founded the event and has a passion for technology. She expressed her excitement about the fair because it provides students with important life skills such as communication and problem solving. The talent and hard work of the students was on display at the fair, and it was evident to see the support and encouragement of the community for their projects. HCS leaders mentioned the incredible growth of the fair over the years and hinted at a possible expansion to state level competitions in the future.
