Students in 4 groups (electrical, fabrication, CAD, software) worked on the year 1 robot. Our goal was to defeat varsity‚Äôs robot from last year. The first year students had to use their robot to out score the varsity teams robot in a game called ping pong pandamonium. In the game, the students had to shoot ping pong balls from a small robot into a target on the wall to score points.
Students work closely with mentors from industry to learn Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and business skills that they will be able to use later in life. There are two competition seasons:
Team 302 promotes Science, Technology and Math (STEM) by participating in local school and community functions as well as at various sponsor events.
