June 21, 2018- Week 1

We have had a fantastic week 1 of the summer robotics 2.0 program. We began the week dissecting the game manual for the new VEX game "Next Level". We began our engineering notebooks, defined the problem, brainstormed, researched, developed/chose the best idea and building the chassis. We are right on schedule to complete working robots by our showcase on July 12th!

Robotics 2.0 is a TPSF summer program that helps prepare one team from each middle school for the competition season. These students will bring back the lessons they learn over summer and become the robotics leaders back at their school sites. We have an absolutely fantastic group of kids this year and they have made so much progress in one week. This is going to be a fun 2018-2019 season.
