  • The Robotics Team hosted the Summer Robtics program in August for the Middle School kids. During this program we encouraged the kids to learn to build and engineer. During this event the kids learned to build robots for two types of robot games. The first game was called tug-o-war and essentially the game was made up of two lego robots and you had to pull the piece of string with the robot on the other side past the line. The second type of game was called Sumo-Wrestling and what the game was composed of was two lego robots and the robots have to push each other past the sumo circle.

  • The second program that the Robotics Team hosted was the Electronics Recycling program. The Robotics Team does this every year. Anyone who was in need to throw away any electronic material would bring it to us for it to be recycled.

  • January 4, 2014 at the Liberty Science Center

    Team 5212 and 251 go at it again at the Liberty Science Center to win it. There seemed to be a problem with Team 251's robot. Their robot kept freezing and didnt know why until one of the referees told Team 251 that their omni wheels on their robot was causing a static shock. This is something both robotics teams never encountered before. Unfortunatley because of this major issue Team 251 was eliminated from the competition due to the many static issues. Team 5212 was still in the competition and made it all the way to the semifinals but lost there. In the award ceremony, 5212 was a runner up for the Connect Award and winner of the PTC Design Award.
