AIS ROBOTICS CLUB PREPARES STUDENTS FOR FUTURE CAREERS IN STEM
Robotics has been a popular program at the intermediate school for the past 3 years. Capacity was maxed out this year with 30 kids meeting 8 times after school to build team robots. They had 8 teams this year of 3-4 students. The goal of the program is not just build robots, but learn to work as a team. Jim Murphy, the AIS Robotics Parent Sponsor and Volunteer has industry experience in designing new products as part of a team and believes that the sooner students can be exposed to real world situations the faster they will adapt and be successful in their after school endeavors. Murphy stated, "Its not just about learning a new skill, its working as a team to overcome internal team struggles and challenges they encounter along the way."
The teams competed internally on January 16th in 3 events, Ring Master, Hub Stack, and Obstacle Course. This was held in the Intermediate School cafeteria where we had a good turnout of parents that came to support the students. This meet gave them practice for the competition with the Middle School on January 23rd.
Working with Mr. Pelt, Middle School Robotics Coach, and Principal Gibson, the AIS teams were able to utilize one of the gyms for the AMS & AIS Competition. This competition gave the entire AIS Robotics Team, which out numbered AMS by 2:1, a chance to test their robots and their driving skills against the upper classmen teams. There were a few take a ways stressed with the students: learn from seeing how someone else approaches a problem (especially if they have different ideas), try your hardest at whatever you do, and have fun. The AMS teams had an interesting strategy, they designed and built their bots specifically for each event (robot stayed at the event and teams rotated). At the end of the day the AMS did pull out an overall win, and an AIS team took first in the Ring Master.
"It has been a great experience for the students and with the large sign-up numbers we have been able to keep the competitions local," said Murphy. Opportunities to expand the program are in the works, adding additional offerings throughout the year including summer programs.
