Wednesday, April 14 2009, Charles Seabury and high school students from Newbury Park, Thousand Oaks, and Westlake High show off their robots and discuss their efforts to win the FIRST Robotics Competition in 2010.
Competitive robotics has been gaining popularity nationwide as a supplement to the conventional science, math and engineering curriculum. Thousand Oaks, Newbury Park and Westlake High Schools now have competitive teams using the VEX platform, and the three schools together compete in the FIRST robotics program. We will describe the history of our program, the current activities ideas for the future as well as needs and opportunities for contributions from the engineering community. Examples of the VEX robots as well as our current FRC entry will be demonstrated.
We hope to see you there.
