Oakland Heights has begun a new and exciting chapter in Engineering! We have formed a Robotics Team! All fourth graders were invited to apply for the Robotics team. Students were selected through an application process. There are four boys and four girls on the team. Mrs. Correia, our science teacher, will coach and lead the team.
The best way to instill a lifelong interest in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) is to provide fun, engaging, and hands-on opportunities for students to explore. This is exactly what the Robotics team does! The Robotics team designs and creates Robotic parts for specific purposes. Each year VEX IQ has a different game challenge for teams. Our team will go to several competitions and compete against other school districts. We could even have the chance to compete against other countries!
By spring, Mrs. Correia is hoping to add another team. The more students we can get involved in engineering the better!
