The project was inspired by Go Baby Go, a national, community-based program. The team decided that this project would be a great opportunity to reach out and make an impact on their community by incorporating skills they had learned while participating in FIRST Tech Challenge robotics."

Musical Mosaic in the Making

"Performing arts is always live, so it's really nice to be part of something that's permanent. I think this mosaic is going to be so beautiful, and will liven up the performing arts hallway," shares Ava Meyer, a Bloomfield Hills High School senior and member of Bloomfield Chorale, one of many musical opportunities available to BHHS students.  Performing arts students helped create a mosaic, which upon completion will hang by the entrance into the performing arts wing.  At the Dessert Concert, the first concert of the school year featuring the BHHS orchestra, choir and band, families were encouraged to be involved in the creation of the mosaic throughout the evening.
