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.
Members of the Newberg High School robotics team, Drew, Riley, and Trey, demonstrated how their robot works and worked with Ewing Young Grades 4 and 5 this morning! More STEM in action at our school! Riley and Trey attended EY and participated in our robotics program several years ago. It was a great opportunity for our students to see how what they are doing in elementary school extends to the high school level.
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.
