Students Set to Take Part in Robotics Competition
Bartlett High School Academy of Science, Engineering and High Technology has students participating in the nationAEs oldest robotic competition
Since 1986, the National Robotics Challenge has been testing the students of today to develop the engineers for tomorrow.
As the nationAEs oldest robotic and engineering competition, the focus for this event has continually been on educating students through design challenges and robotic battles. Bartlett High School has two teams of students who have been accepted into the competition.
Participants must first choose from over a dozen robotic contests and then create their project u from initial design to assembly and testing. Some of the events for the competition include SUMO Robot, Art Robot, Mini-SUMO Robot, Robot Maze and Top-of-the-Hill.
"ItAEs all about the learning," said Tad Douce, a technical teacher and the eventAEs manager. "When Tom Meravi and Dr. (James) Hannemann started this competition, the focus was on creating excitement for the students in the field of engineering. It is great to see teams come back year after year and increase their robotsAE capabilities. For the participants, it is not just a game but an experience."
Bartlett High School Academy of Science, Engineering and High Technology is the model school for the competition, with the academyAEs focus on challenging students in the fields of mathematics and science. …
