With this support, the students can build the T-shirt cannon robot they have designed. Also present at the event will be the middle school Lego teams in addition to the high school kids, so folks will be able to see how this process starts in 5th or 6th grade and by high school produces extremely capable Junior engineers.
The East TN Robotics Organization promotes robotics & educational opportunities throughout East Tennessee. For instance, the Oak Ridge High School (ORHS) robotics team sponsors all the Lego (5-8th grade) teams not only in the Oak Ridge school system but also in surrounding counties. The ORHS team also contains students from other high schools. A long term goal of the East TN Robotics Organization is to refurb the Armory into a robotics center. Instead of having the shop at the high school, which is less than optimal, the ORHS team would have everything in place at the Armory and work out of there for their year-round projects such as Robot in A Box where the ORHS team builds kits and donates them to surrounding county schools and provides instruction to teachers.
We hope you will consider attending this event and support this local STEM initiative.
