This year I started going to the Middle School Robotics club. I was excited about joining ever since the first day of school in September. “What is Robotics?” you may ask. Robotics is a club which meets on Tuesdays after school. During our meetings we create and program robots. We have just completed the Parking Lot challenge, which was a lot of fun. We had to learn how to program a robot to enter a parking lot and park. After we accomplished this, my group decided to make our robot back out of the lot. This took a lot of work, but we were able to do it eventually. I think programming a robot is interesting because you must learn to use an app. Since I am on the new fifth grade team we probably will not do any competitions. The teams of older students have gone to several competitions and succeeded. My sister, who is on one of the teams, has told me how important it is to work together when preparing for these events. She also said that the competitions are very exciting. We’ll let you know how the team does! I hope you will consider joining this year!
