Robotics 2021-22

Sat Jan 22 - CMS Robotics heads to Kremmling - Coaches will communicate bus departure time.


Robotics next competition is on January 22 in Kremmling, we will share more details as the time approaches.


The robotics teams are up and running, and the students are making great strides. Our teams will demonstrate their progress by attending four separate events. Each event is scored using the FIRST robotics judging rubrics. This will mimic what the regional competition will look like in November and be good practice for the teams. The events are:


Project: Teams should identify their problem related to the transporting, sorting, or delivery of packages. They will present the Slide they have prepared with research. The solution will be developed later in preparation for the regional competition in Grand Junction.


Core Values: Teams will be given an unknown challenge in which teamwork and sportsmanship skills will be evaluated.


Robot Design: Teams will explain to the judge the reasoning behind their robot design and coding.


Robot Game: Teams will complete the missions they have accomplished thus far and will be granted points earned for missions completed successfully.


Specific dates of events will be shared as time gets closer
