Our robotics team is growing on campus. I help co-coach our newly formed team. They are young and eager students who meet twice a week and on Saturdays. We are gearing up for the robotics season and need to have students learn about the design process. The students are learning so many technical skills. Also, the team vibe is terrific. They are learning how to collaborate and communicate. Students will go to middle schools to showcase their robot from season 2018.
Students will design a moving robot that will launch t-shirts. We have secured funds from our after school program to purchase a base kit for our robot. Students will have to plan and design a robot which will move remotely and launch t-shirts. They need to research and plan to complete the robot within 2 months. We would like to showcase this robot at the next school rally.
Students will tap into their artistic abilities and have to design t-shirts, as well as build the robot.
Students need to tap into their creative side and design shirts for the team, as well as shirts to be launched in the robot. Robotics utilizes art, literacy, and engineering. There are a lot of aspects to robot building, especially reading and research. After reading about specific builds, students will need to incorporate the history of space endeavors into their t-shirt design. Students need to build a functional robot yet use their creative side of their brains to make the robot run.
Students will use these T-shirts to help recruit students to the robotics team. There are many coaches and mentors who help with this team. This project is student-centered and incorporates art and literacy. We are excited for season 2019 and look forward to this robot and the upcoming competition.
