Description

Millwood Robotics is a middle and high school team that participates in the First Tech Challenge robotics competition to support the advancement of the students academically and socially, with grant funding from Tinker Airforce Base. Students are given different challenges to complete, and they analyze them, develop a strategy for scoring points and draft the design for their robot. Students have built functional robots with gripping claws, rotating arms, ring-shooter mechanisms and even code that allows the robot to see” what is in front of it. Students also develop and improve public speaking skills as they provide a 5-minute presentation about their journey throughout the engineering process.
