Robotics Team Heads to the Florida State Championship

USchool Robotics IMG_6633The University School Suns Robotics team (U.S.S.R.) has won its third consecutive Tournament Championship title this season, defeating top-ranked teams in each of the three VEX Robotics State Qualifiers. Outscoring all teams, the U.S.S.R. team has overwhelmingly dominated the competition and has earned two spots in the Florida VEX Robotics State Championship.

Competitive robotics teams are tasked annually with designing and building robots to play against each other in a game-based engineering challenge. Mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science concepts are combined to build innovative robots designed to score the most points possible during a challenge. VEX Skyrise is the game for the 2014-2015 competition year, and the focus is on robots demonstrating stability, accuracy, and height. Click here to learn more about the VEX Robotics Competition.

In addition to building remarkable robots, “robotics students learn lifelong skills in problem solving, teamwork, and leadership, while also making great friendships” remarked Alexander Lotz, grade 12, when asked what makes the University School robotics program unique.
