  2. DuBois takes fourth consecutive win in BEST Robotics DuBOIS – DuBois Area High School has taken the top spot in the BEST Robotics Contest at Penn State DuBois for the fourth year in a row. Taking first place in BEST means the team's performance in robotics, their engineering design notebook, marketing plan, and other areas of the competition were all tallied and combined for a total score. This gives DuBois a bid to advance to the regional competition planned for December 7, and 8, in Denver, Colorado. First place in the individual robotics portion went to Mentor Christian School, from Mentor, Ohio. Taking first in robotics also gets Mentor a bid to the regionals in Colorado. BEST (Boosting Engineering, Science and Technology) took place on Saturday, October 19, in the campus gymnasium. This year’s theme was titled “Off the Grid” and was based on a scenario where a natural disaster has taken out the supply of electricity to an area. In the simulation students were required to use their robots to repair the electrical grid. BEST provides all necessary parts and equipment for teams to build a robot that they can use to run a course and perform specified tasks. The robot must be built within a six-week time frame. On the days of the contest, all teams run the course, competing for the best times and course completion. Through participation in this project-based program, students learn to analyze and solve problems utilizing the Engineering Design Process, which helps them develop technological literacy skills. The goal is to better prepare these students for further education and careers in STEM fields, (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). The learning opportunities with BEST don't stop at STEM fields. Teams also compete and receive awards for other areas of the project, which include marketing, exhibition, an engineering notebook, sportsmanship, team spirit, and more. “The greatest thing about BEST Robotics is how it brings together people with different skills and teaches them that each person has talents, whether it’s graphic arts, programming, marketing, building, or leadership skills, that are all equally important to the success of an organization,” said Stephen Feldbauer, instructor in the Penn State DuBois engineering programs, and coordinator for BEST at Penn State DuBois. Schools participating in Penn State DuBois BEST this year were Altoona High School; Bethlehem Center High School; Cranberry Area School District; DuBois Area High School; Mentor Christian School, from Mentor, Ohio; Oil City School District; The Tatnall School, from Wilmington, Delaware; Redbank Valley High School; and Redeemer Lutheran School. Other awards included Best Notebook: Cranberry Area; Marketing: Cranberry Area; Spirit and Sportsmanship: DuBois; Team Exhibit and Interview: DuBois; Best T-Shirt: Cranberry Area; Best Team Flag: Cranberry Area; Founders Award: DuBois; Most Robust Robot: DuBois. BEST Executive Director Michael Steiner attended Game Day at Penn State DuBois, as he did for the kick-off event in September. Steiner oversees the entire nation-wide organization, based out of Pittsburgh, including 47 hubs, more than 900 schools, and nearly 30,000 students participating each year. He praised the DuBois hub for its organization, talented students, and exciting atmosphere. “The reason I’m here is that I see in every one of you an amazing scientist or engineer,” Steiner told the students. “I believe in you, and I want to see you go forward and succeed.” BEST at Penn State DuBois is made possible by Platinum Sponsor Miller Fabrication Solutions, Silver Sponsors Atlas Pressed Metals and Comtec Manufacturing, Inc, and Bronze Sponsor Eastern Sintered Alloys, Inc. # # # DuBois Area High School students raise their flag in celebration after winning first place in the Penn State DuBois BEST Robotics Competition on Saturday.

  10. Dr. Francis C. Cataldi, 90 years old, of Drs Lane, Penfield, PA passed away peacefully at his home on October 14,, 2019 with his wife and daughters at his side, after a brief illness. Born on November 23, 1928 in Tyler, PA, he was the second son of Angelo and Concetta Paturzo Cataldi. Francis graduated from Huston Township High School in 1946. He married Elvera Grace Segalla on July 8, 1950 and entered the Army in 1951. Before being honorably discharged, he and Vera moved to Indianapolis, IN and he entered Lincoln Chiropractic College, graduating with honors in 1958 as a Doctor of Chiropractic. Francis was very proud of the fact that he worked various odd jobs to put himself through Chiropractic School while supporting his wife and newborn child. Francis practiced as a Chiropractor in PA for 50 years, and his daughters are still approached by people who miss his honest and caring treatment. He also worked for the State of Pennsylvania and for the Department of Environmental Resources as a Surface Mine Inspector, for 10 years prior to retirement. During that time, he served as Union President for AFSCME. Even in retirement, he had a thirst for knowledge and was always available to family and friends for help and advice. Francis was a member of the Driftwood Masonic Lodge No. 532 and served as Grand Master in 1973, 1977 and 1981. He remained an honorary member until his passing. He will be dearly missed by his wife for being a caring, trustworthy and loving husband. His daughters will remember him not only as their hero, but for instilling the importance of hard work, honesty, knowledge and principals. He is survived by his wife of 69 years, 3 daughters, Renee, Denise, and Lisa, and a sister, Jennie Emmert. Many may remember him as "Doc" or "Bear", his childhood nickname. He was preceded in death by his parents, 2 brother (Cosimo and Antonio "Tony" Cataldi), and 1 sister (Anna Marie Herzing). There will be no public visitation and private services will be held at the convenience of the family. The Baronick Funeral Home & Crematorium, Inc is in charge of arrangements.
