For the first time, we are offering a behind-the-scenes opportunity to see how our students are applying their Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) knowledge and skills to prepare for a FIRST® LEGO® League tournament. We invite you to join us during our evening Open House this Tuesday January 26 (6:00 pm -8:00 pm) at the RMS Academy Campus to see one of our Robotics competition teams, the #Swagbots Reincarnated, hone their robotics challenges and project presentation in preparation for the upcoming FIRST® LEGO® League Provincial Championship tournament taking place in Waterloo next Saturday January 30th. We are excited to share the momentum and enthusiasm of this year’s Robotics Club, and showcase some of the our students’ great accomplishments in the field of Robotics. It is always a joy to see young minds at work. As you can imagine, this will be an energetic session full of enthusiasm.
During the session, our #Swagbots Reincarnated robotics team will be making final adjustments to the LEGO® robots which they have built specifically for the competition. The team members will be testing their robots’ performance on a number of challenges so as to gather as many points as possible on the FIRST® LEGO® League competition board course. You will have an opportunity to see first-hand the programming and adaptation skills the robotics team members have developed and are applying to compete in these types of competitions.
Our #Swagbots team will also be presenting their research project which demonstrates an innovative solution they have conceived to the current problem of recycling electronic waste. At the FIRST® LEGO® League tournaments, the teams are judged not only on their research project but also on how well they can are able to present it and convey its significance. These presentations are an integral part of the FIRST® LEGO® League tournaments.
Although robots are fun to watch, seeing and feeling the excitement of the team members is just as exhilarating! Mark this special event in your personal calendar and know that you, your family members, and friends are welcome to drop by anytime between 6:00pm and 8:00pm.
