Middle & Upper School RoboticsThe Robotics Club is open to all middle school and upper school students. No prior coding experience is necessary, and all materials are provided. Students learn how robots are built and controlled and participate in challenges. These challenges allow students the opportunity to design and program a robot to successfully complete tasks. Participants also have the opportunity to compete in the fall and spring Region VII Robotics Challenge which consists of two separate events – an engineering challenge and a course challenge. Both events use the LEGO Mindstorms robot kit. This fall’s competition is “The Tall Texas Tail of the Doughty Dewayne Dudley Dwight Delaware Do-Wrong” and features such tasks as programming the robot to follow a line using the EV3’s color sensors and lift plastic eggs and place them in a carton.
