Smiles and cheers from sixth grade students at Seneca Middle School in Michael Lundstrom’s Technology class were abundant as they participated in a robotics unit in which they competed in a challenging competition with their peers. 

As part of the robotics unit spanning several weeks, student groups worked collaboratively to assemble a Vex Robot kit that would be used in the competition. The intricate build process emphasized engineering principles, teamwork and interpersonal skills to create a successful robot.  

Following the build process, student groups competed in matches where they were awarded points for completing specific tasks with their remote-controlled robots, such as lifting small blocks and balls, transporting them across the course and dropping them into a designated container.
