CHS Robotics Team Encourages Young Students to Form Teams
If you've been waiting to see videos of the Columbia High School world-class, award-winning Robotics Team and its robot Scorpion, it's here. Just click on the video below. And, if you know of a youngster who might be interested in robotic competitions on an international level, you'll be glad to know that the district PTAs and HSAs are helping to arrange for beginners Lego robotics clubs in the fall.
The Columbia High School Robotics Team recently invited interested parents with their middle and elementary schoolchildren to a meeting in the Columbia cafeteria. Much to the delight of the Team, parents and students filled the room. Presentations were made by CHS Team members, including a demonstration of the award-winning Scorpion.
As previously reported on the District"s website, The Columbia High School Robotics Team has recently won world acclaim for the amazing skills the members demonstrated in designing and building a robot for competition.
In existence for less than a year, the Team built and programmed a robot that was named second best in the world on Saturday, April 30, 2011. The robot, designed by the CHS 11-member team, under the guidance of CHS physics teacher Allan Tumolillo, won this outstanding title at the 2011 FIRST Tech Challenge World Championship Tournament in St. Louis, Missouri.
The videos were filmed and edited by a member of the Team, Kyle Rabago-Banjo.
