Lee’s Summit North High School Broncobots held two robotics camps for children during July. Students from fourth through sixth grade attended the one-week camps, forming eight teams and competing as alliances with and against one another.
The camps were modeled after FIRST national robotics competitions, an engineering program designed for high school students.
Teams were given four days to design and build a robot out of VEX parts with one day for competition. The game, Quack Attack, involved each alliance collecting colored ducks and scoring them in either a high, medium or low goal; the alliance with the most points at the end of the three-minute match wins.
