Middle School Students Enjoy Robotics


Robotics at DCC Middle School

 Members of the 8th grade class at DuBois Central Catholic Middle School work in teams to program their robot to carry out a given task.   Using “Lego Mindstorm Robotics,” these teams of middle school students were challenged to program their robot to travel through traffic lights.  Each time the robot detected red, it would stop and wait ‘to see green’ before moving forward.   Course instructor, Angela Edwards, says, “The students utilized motors for movement and sensors to detect the robot’s environment in order to react,“ adding, “It’s not just about programming, it’s about problem solving, trouble shooting, and strengthening their analytical skills.”
