Robotics Club

SponsorsMrs. Nancy O'Neal and Mrs. Ellen Holladay

 

Ransom Robotics Club will participate in two competitions during the 2015-2016 school year. 

BEST Robotics competes on November 7th with a practice day on October 31st.

Sea Perch competition is in April with the actual date to be announced.

The BEST ROBOTICS COMPETITION focuses on STEM literacy.  STEM literacy integrates science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.  The students will design, build, and program a working robot.  The robot must perform tasks to receive points during the completion.  The students will also be completing an engineering notebook that follows the design process, an exhibit booth, and give a presentation as part of the competition.

The Sea Perch project in the spring also incorporates STEM literacy.  The students will build a remote control underwater vehicle that must perform tasks underwater during the completion.

The Club meets every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 7:30am to 9:00am during the competition stages.  We also meet on Saturdays as the deadline for completion approaches.
