See you April 21st @ San Diego Botball & Jr Botball Challenge!
Time: 8 am – 2 pm • Location: University of San Diego • Schedule (see below)
Jr Botballers: Get ready to teach your robot to solve these challenges!
Jeff Major hosted a training for Teachers and Team Representatives from Grades 6 – 12.
Thank You to All Students, Teachers, and Parents for A Great Day at Hoover High
Hoover Cluster: 10 Elementary Schools • 2 Middle Schools • 1 High School
This Saturday we introduced the K-2 Challenges using the Probot® robot for younger children:
Early Learning Advantage!™ ⇒ Programming • Problem-Solving • Applied Mathematics!
Hoover High School is hosting a Junior Botball® Challenge event on Sat, November 11, 2017 at the small gym. This event will be free and open to the public → DIRECTIONS
There are 6 Challenges at this event: Challenges 1, 2, 5, 9, 11, & Dance Party Challenge.
Challenges 1, 2, & 5 are for the beginner level, Challenges 9 & 11 will be for the intermediate level & the 6th challenge will be a mystery revealed onsite.
Dance Party participants will receive a completion award when the robot “dances” to the music provided by the students and completes all of the performance standards:
In this ⇒ Video Clip two students on the Arts & Sciences Academy Robotics Team solve the “Serpentine Challenge” in Saturday’s Junior Botball Robotics Tournament in San Diego.
The tournament was organized by Jeff Major:
The Arts & Sciences Academy Robotics Team of Dharma and Martina were the ONLY team to solve all 5 challenges in the tournament! (their code is below the “read more” tag) Arts & Sciences Academy student Max, arriving near the end of the morning also finished 4 out of 5 challenges before running out of time!
Since the weekend’s tournament the MISD robotics team students have moved on to the second level of Jr Botball: Learning about Sensors, Light Energy & the Electromagnetic Spectrum, Digital vs Analog inputs, and more…!
Jr Botball is a program designed to get American kids playing the “game” of Math & Science at an early age. 3rd graders and up learn to program in Objective C to “teach” their robots to solve a series of challenges that require them to understand coding, electronics, sensors, simple machines, and more:
CA Math & Science Challenge:
Programming • Problem-Solving • Applied Mathematics • sTEm Design
