Fledgling LS Robotics Program Takes Big Step Up
Fifth graders Harold Hoffmann, Tyler Foland, and Ben Cunningham on Robot Team 94D went to the Guinness Book of World Records Largest Online Robotics Championship on Tuesday -- topping their personal best robot skills score! In the Driving Trials, they came short of the two-row bonus by millimeters but still earned their season's best. In the Autonomous Trials (coding), they achieved their 14-point objective on the last trial! Each time they interacted directly with live referees over webcam and large screen monitors. 94D is the first CSN Elementary robot team to advance to the VEX Robotics World Championship.
