Our robotics team is made up of 40 students from all different grade levels and diverse backgrounds. Students compete in the BEST robotics competition in the fall and the SeaPerch (underwater) robotics competition in the spring.
Students master skills in: engineering, building, and programming the robot, creating the booth, marketing our product, technical writing (engineering notebook), and spirit and sportsmanship.
All of these areas are part of each of the robotics' competitions as well as necessary skills the students are going to need to take into the real world of engineering.
The RoboJackets are going pro at the BEST robotics regional competition at Auburn University in December. Robot can go pro and record all of the action while it completes the task on the game floor with our state of the art "Go Pro" Camera to record everything.
The RoboJackets will record our robot ,Mare, cleaning the 4 ocean gyres of bottles, cans, and micro-plastics on the BEST robotics simulation floor with the Go Pro.
The game simulates the real world problem of how giant ocean garbage patches are hurting our environment and sea life. Currently there is no real solution to this problem--only prototypes. The RoboJackets are on the cutting edge of solving a very real environment problem in our world.
