South High Robotics Club
This year’s group is up and running. The group has split into 4 teams that will begin to brainstorm and build for the competition called Nothing But Net. They will build and design separate robots for the competition with support from the whole group. There are 4-5 students per group. Our team numbers are 6004A, 6004B, 6004C, and 6004D.
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 3:10-5:00
Additional meetings are encouraged outside of school
Additional times may be added before competitions
The teams are registered for a competition on Saturday 12/12/15 at North Junior High in St. Cloud. The event is called Granite City Vex Tournament and is an all-day tournament. Travel to the tournament is not provided but carpooling is encouraged. If all or some of the teams perform well in the Granite City event then they may qualify for the state tournament. The Minnesota State Vex Robotics Tournament is called Dream It, Do It. The event is Friday and Saturday 1/29/16-1/30/16 Find event information at robotevents.com, click on VEX Competition for middle/high school.
The fee to sign up for the club is $100. The money is used to register the teams and to register for each event. Robot materials and components are also needed as we do not have enough materials from classroom kits to supplement the club robots. Some of the fees also go for snacks during meetings.
