Robotics Club Encourages New Skills
By Kent Bergum
The newly formed Robotics club at Superior High School provides an exciting opportunity for students to apply engineering and design skills. Through designing functional robots, students apply their knowledge in the areas of DC electronics, pneumatics, computer programming, and mechanical engineering.
Teams of students are tasked with designing and building a robot to play against other teams in a game-based engineering challenge. Classroom STEM concepts are put to the test on the playing field as students learn lifelong skills in strategy, teamwork, leadership, communications, and more.
Interested students will have an opportunity to participate in the Skills USA Robotics competition. The club meets weekly during Lunch and Learn and the club advisor is Mr. Paul Skarman.
