The Middle School competitive robotics team is open to any student who is interested in working with the team to build a single robot that will compete at a qualifying tournament in November and, hopefully, the Rhode Island state competition in January.
The team will collaboratively design, engineer and program a robot to navigate a number of comprehensive challenges. They will also be required to work on both a research paper and project that will be presented to their peers at Gordon as well as the competition judges.
Registration for 2017-2018
The Middle School robotics team returns in September.
Registration for the team will not begin until Orientation Day, Tuesday, September 5th. On that afternoon, Middle School assistant Kim Mongeon will email families to alert them that online registration has begun. The final team roster will be posted by the end of the week.
The robotics team meets Tuesdays and Fridays, 3:30-4:30pm, from September 12th through January. Competitors should save the dates for an all-day qualifying tournament on Saturday, December 2nd , as well as a state tournament to be held on a Saturday in January.
