Members of the robotics club will design, build and program robots to complete a variety of task. The robots are apart of the Lego MindStorm collection so there is no prior knowledge of robotics or programming needed. Members will form their own groups up to 3-4 students and will work together as a team. After 4-5 meetings a set of challenges will be presented to the teams. Teams will compete against each other to solve various robotic challenges. Teams will be asked to solve challenges where they have to build and program robots to accomplish a given task. Points are awarded for each challenge. At the end of the program we crown the top robotic team at NMS.
