South San High School Robotics Team
In a six-week time period, our Robotics Team, made of students, teachers and mentors (from various community companies), come together to design, build, and program a competition robot. This requires communication, team building, and problem solving; all skills on demand by today’s work force. Robotics tries to create a real-life situation to mimic what might happen in the work force, while tying in STEM, and making it fun. FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition in Science and Technology – the world-wide organization we compete under) calls it the hardest fun you will ever have. Robotics changes lives; sometimes by getting students interested in a new field, the skills needed to get a good job, or just the confidence to go forward with what they want to do. It makes a difference in that it encourages students to think outside the box and to see a world beyond themselves. Vote for us!
Congratulations South San High School on being this month's Cool School!
