Robotics

Welcome to the STA Robotics Club

Keep an eye out for announcements of upcoming spring robotics meetings......

STA Students in 4th-8th grade are invited to join the STA Robotics Club. 
The season starts in September and goes through November at which point our teams will compete at the annual First Lego League (FLL) robotics competition!  
Students meet several times a week and put in many hours of preparation: programming, researching, real world problem solving and creating group presentations.

A note from the Sea Turtle Recovery Organization at the Turtle Back Zoo:

The Sea Turtle Recovery, STR,  just received a message from Deb Macevoy stating that  the St. Thomas Mega Masters Fundraiser  raised $160 for our cause.  Our organization is happy to announce that we just opened and currently are working to rehabilitate eleven Kemp's Ridley sea turtles.  The money that was raised will help us care and save these endangered species, and STR wants you to know how grateful we are for the support.
 
Sincerely,
 
Brandi Biehl

2016 Robotics Club Information

We are so thrilled with all of the STA teams!  We could not be prouder of the effort that was put forth by our students  

Our Tech Dragons had the 4th highest score out of 44 teams in the Robot Missions.

Our Mega Masters (Devin Andress, Carter Courtney, Kenny McGowan, Diana Prisco, Regina Salandra, Garan Salandy, and Camille Schiralli) received a Project Inspiration award for their research and design and was one of only nine teams at the event to advance to the First Lego League State Championship!
 
Our four STA teams were placed in the top half of all the teams competing in the Robot Mission section of the competition.  Each of our thirty students had a part to play in the success of all the teams!!
 
This year's teams have just raised the bar.  We now know that we can compete at a higher level and we look forward to doing so again next year. 
 
Thanks,
STA Robotics
