It’s already that time of year! Students are building their training bots today and will start programming tasks this week and they will soon be exploring how to use light sensors. Stay tuned for more updates!
Today our students competed in the Line Follower Robotics Challenge. This was a particularly difficult challenge, and while all robots did not complete the course, each group has displayed excellent engineering and problem solving skills. We had several robots that completed the course in impressive times. The final results are as follows.
1st Place – Stewie (16.66 sec)
2nd Place- Dumbo (17.71 sec)
3rd Place – Alvin the Great (18.69 sec)
The robotics challenge, The Line Follower Challenge, will be on Wednesday, June 3 at 9:40-10:40 in the EY Gym. Our students have been furiously programming, designing, and redesigning their robots to successfully follow a line course using a light sensor. Parents are welcome to attend.
It’s that time of year again! We broke out the robotics kits this week and are excited to launch into some new STEM challenges. In the coming weeks our 4th and 5th graders will learn programming with NXT software, tackle mathematical challenges, and use light sensors to meet a challenge in a competition. Stay tuned for more!
