Salem High School is teaming up with F.I.R.S.T. to start a Robotics Team for the 2019-2020 school year. Led by new Computer Science teacher Amber Pryor and web developer Cory Crocker, the robotics team will participate in a F.I.R.S.T. Tech Challenge competition. Visit this page frequently to see what we are up to as we embark on this new program! If you have any skills that would help our project be successful, please submit your email address to Mrs. Pryor below.
Below you'll find all scheduled meetings and events for the Salem robotics team during the 2019-2020 school year.
September 27, 2019 -- The team has been hard at work getting started on the building process of the robot. Some members have been working on publicity, fundraising, and programming. The entire process is a learning experience for the students! They are learning great skills like critical thinking, public speaking, and marketing! See some of our pictures below.
September 10, 2019 -- The Robotics Team voted in officers at the third meeting of the school year! We also voted on a team name. We are the CIRCUIT BREAKERS!!! Preparations are under way to build the robot to this year's game specifications. We hope to be ready to participate in a meet in December or January and a qualifier in February. Whether or not we advance, we will plan to attend the state championship at Missouri S & T in March!
June 10, 2019 -- A small group of interested students attended the Robotics Expo in Rolla. As we begin our new Computer Science program, we will also be starting a Robotics team! These students were able to see and experience first-hand what a robotics team can do! We were excited to be able to operate the robots ourselves, ask questions about mechanics and programming from other high school robotics team members, make connections, and get inspiration as we prepare for our first competitive year.
