School students accurately describes our day yesterday. Thumbs Up!
Red Stick Robotics was at LSU presenting day 2 of 3 for
our Robotics II series at LSU. This workshop series is for students to learn more advance skills in programming in preparation for the upcoming VEX
I asked the students what were some things that they would take away from the workshop today, Ian L. from Catholic of Pointe Coupee shared with me that he really learned some valuable things about functions. He said the knowledge that he gained would have saved him a lot of time and would have shortened his coding significantly in the past. He is looking forward to putting his new gained knowledge into action at the VEX competition. He is especially looking forward to the competition because although it will be mostly Louisiana teams competing, his school (and all of the schools at the competition) will also have an opportunity to compete against some out of state schools that are participating and will have the opportunity to qualify to compete at the VEX World Competition in Anaheim, California in April.
The Port Allen High School students received a valuable lesson in improvising today. At one point their robot was being held together with rubber bands and medical tape. However don't let the rubber bands and tape cause you to think they are not going to be a strong competitor. They tell me that they are going to be a winning team at the UNO VEX competition and that currently they can pick up 3 sacks at one time and are working on more!
