camelot robotics wins most innovative solution
The “Robotic Knights” at Camelot Elementary School had the opportunity to compete in a regional qualifier at Roosevelt High School on Saturday, Jan. 26.
At the competition, they had to complete four tasks on which they were scored by judges. They had to show their robot design, solve a problem by working as team, present an innovative idea that would help senior citizens in their daily lives, and program their robot to complete a series of challenges. The Robotic Knights received an award for their project.
The Robotic Knights at Camelot came up with a sensor that would alert seniors if they left a door open, for example a refrigerator door, the front door or even the oven door. They had to do research from multiple sources, create a complete presentation and then present it in a judging room.
They received the Most Innovative Solution Award, one of the highest honors given at the competition. Because they scored so high with their senior solution and did very well solving a problem as a team, they qualified for the Regional Competition to be held on March 30.
Sponsors Robert LoBasso and Stephanie Blue are thrilled with their student’s great achievement.
“I am so proud of our team,” said Stephanie Blue. “This was a great way for the kids to learn that you don’t have to be the best, you just have to try your best.”
