MONDAY and WEDNESDAY
From 3pm - 5pm
Our CouGEARS competed with 41 other middle school teams in ROVER RUCKUS, a First Robotics 2018-2019 event at Oxford Middle School. 7th and 8th grade members applied STEM concepts, and accepted the challenge. They produced their engineering notebook, built and programmed their robot, and presented their team and robot to judges. Coach Janet Hanke wants to thank Patricia Brown for her consistent support at both weekly meetings and at the event; Caitlyn Brown and Michael Huguley for mentoring; and our team parents for their support during the build and especially at the event. It was wonderful! One consistent comment from our team was, "We made this ourselves!" They proclaimed to the judges that their team was like a family!
The team will be opening its membership to 6th graders in January. The team will meet on Wednesday's to build a second robot. New members will learning essential skills to be an productive team member. Current members will continue to meet Wednesday's from 3-5pm.
FTC world championships will be in Detroit April 13-27th. The team will take a field trip one day to view the competition.
