ROBOTICS CLUB: RIGOROUS WORK, ACHIEVEMENT, POSSIBILITIES

Posted April 17 at 11:34am

The bots are working double time, and so are builders and programmers with Minisink Valley’s Robotics Club, as they ready for the next competition: The 2017 New Jersey / New York Botball Tournament on May 13.

 

After it signed up for Botball, the club received all the components and instructions to assemble the game board. The size of a large table and resembling an obstacle course, the game board is used to test the bots and practice the challenges they will face at the competition.

 

Enrollment was up this year, and the club has three teams of two programmers and two builders, each. Builders in each team start off by designing and engineering two bots. Programmers decide how the bots are going to score points on the game board and begin developing the necessary code. From there they work closely together, systematically testing and tweaking to ensure every piece is in the right place, and everything happens at the right time and speed – with consistency.
