In this ⇒ Video Clip two students on the MISD Robotics Team solve the “Serpentine Challenge” in Saturday’s Junior Botball Robotics Tournament in San Diego, organized by Jeff Major: MISD STEM & Outdoor Education Coach and Director of Training and Tournaments at CA Math & Science Championship.
The MISD Robotics Team of Dharma and Martina were the ONLY team to solve all 5 challenges in the tournament! (their code is below the “read more” tag) MISD student Max Fastlicht, arriving near the end of the morning also finished 4 out of 5 challenges before running out of time!
Since the weekend’s tournament the MISD robotics team students have moved on to the second level of Jr Botball: Learning about Sensors, Light Energy & the Electromagnetic Spectrum, Digital vs Analog inputs, and more…!
MISD students study robotics, programming, mathematics, music, foreign languages and more in MISD’s new Learning Acceleration Lab:
Jr Botball is a program designed to get American kids playing the “game” of Math & Science at an early age. 3rd graders and up learn to program in Objective C to “teach” their robots to solve a series of challenges that require them to understand coding, electronics, sensors, simple machines, and more:
CA Math & Science Championship: Programming • Problem-Solving • Applied Mathematics • sTEm Design
To see the CODE the girls wrote to solve the serpentine challenge…and more photos from the Tournament…
