Robotics at Prairie Vista

On Thursday, June 1st Penn Robotics Team 135 visited Prairie Vista Elementary School, one of the eleven elementary schools in the Penn Harris Madison school corporation. The team spoke to175 fourth and fifth graders about FIRST and the robotics programs offered at Penn High School, which they will be attending in just a few short years. This visit was an excellent opportunity to reach out to the younger community. We are always looking for ways to expand the robotics programs within the district and beyond.

The five Penn students that attended demonstrated the robot to the kids and allowed them to interact with it. The children were excited to see what team 135 had accomplished. They were engaged in the discussion and asked meaningful questions that showed their interest, such as, “What programming language do you use?” and “How do you acquire sponsors?” This was a rewarding visit for our team and showed us that the future of robotics is a bright one.
