December 2: This past fall, with support from PTL, Zion Lutheran school formed a robotics club for 5th and 6th graders. There was enough student interest to form 3 teams with parents acting as coaches. The teams worked on Sunday afternoons to build the robots, program the robots for specific tasks and prepare for questions from a panel at the competition.
The competition was held two weeks ago and our teams did great! Our Bobcats Robotics team won the Robot Performance Award with a high score in their division. Problem solving, programming and collaboration with peers are important skills needed to be successful on these teams. Congratulations!
