This year’s “Can Do” robotics project and competition was fantastic. We were particularly amazed at this year’s group’s engineering design skills and creative thinking. Also impressive was the excellent collaboration skills during class time. Our competition this year was very intense with several robots performing at high levels and the competition was very close. When all was said and done, the final results in the final round were as follows:
- First Place- “Bubby III”, 11.81 sec
- Second Place- “Robo Joe”, 23.69 sec
- Third Place- “Snowman”, 25.76
Next, students will explore ultrasonic sensors!
Yesterday we finished out robotics unit in style with the Can Do Challenge. In this competition, students programmed robots with light sensors to stay within a ring and knock pop cans out of the ring in three minutes or less. This year’s group of students did a fantastic job in design, programming, and collaboration, and it led to a great competition. Congratulations to every team for a great effort this year.
Our students have been working hard to learn Lego NXT programming, and they are currently becoming proficient with light sensor programming. On June 9, at 1:30 pm, our 4th/5th grade robotics teams will be participating in the “Can Do Robotics Challenge.” The competition will last approximately and hour and 15 minutes. Parents are welcome to attend and come and go as they wish.
