St. Pete Beach Robotics Program
The St. Pete Beach robotics program is composed of one robotics team and several classes that encourage students to have fun while learning the principles of Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) and Computer Science by building robots. The students design, construct, and program the robots that accomplish robotic missions using fully autonomous robots.
The St. Pete Beach robotics program has classes that will teach students teamwork by paring the students in teams of two where they will work together to program and build fully autonomous robots.
The St. Pete Beach robotics program also has a junior robotics team that creates advanced robots to compete in local and national tournaments. The team has so far been to the Robofest World Championship three times and has gone against teams from 13 US States, Brazil, Canada, China, Columbia, Egypt, England, France, Ghana, Hong Kong, India, Korea, Mexico, Singapore, and South Africa.
We ask for your help by donating what you can and what you are comfortable to help the program buy robotics kits so they can expand to reach more students.
Please help us continue to lead the way for the next generation by supporting things like the SPB Community Center’s Robotics Program!
On Saturday the team then competed in the Game competition. There were two rounds both with unknown task and factors in the beginning where the team had to reprogram their robot in under 40 minutes for each round. The kids then worked on their robot with absolutely no adult help. They ended with a perfect score in each round but the final winner came down to time and the team ended up getting fourth place at the Game World Championship!
We want to thank everyone who helped us go to Detroit and compete in this years 2016 World Championship!
As coach for the team I will be solely responsible for withdrawing the funds and depositing them into an account set up specifically for the robotics team. I am also responsible for spending the funds which will be used solely for the team. Any money not used for this trip will be used for additional equipment for the robotics program and for the trip next year.
Thanks again for your generosity.
Detroit beware because we are coming for you next.
Thanks Robofest, Cornerstone School and Marion Technical Institue for a great event.
