The robotics teams from Erie Middle School are each working to plan, build, program, and document a unique robot design showcasing their engineering abilities. Their robots will then compete in the 2018-2019 VEX Robotics Competition game, Turning Point. During short matches, the teams will work together with allied teams in order to score more points than opposing alliances.
Robotics teaches students engineering skills, teamwork, leadership, critical thinking, time management, communication, research, a failure mindset, and other 21st century skills—all in a fun & engaging way. Statistics show that there are over 8 million unfilled STEM careers in the US.
The Erie Middle School VEX Robotics Club has welcomed many new robotics students in our 2nd year, and we hope to be competitive within the state of Colorado.
