Five St. Angela students came together to form the Coding Cougars Robotics Team. This team assembled and programmed a small robot and entered the 1st annual Damien High School Robotics Competition for Jr. High Students. The competition included three challenges: programming your robot to dance to music, programming your robot to read contact sensors and successfully navigate through a maze, and programming your robot to read photo light sensors to traverse a black line through obstacles. The students had 5 weeks to learn how to operate and program the robot, and to create programs for each of the challenges. Small modifications were performed at the competition to adapt to the new variables presented.
The Coding Cougars brought home the bronze metal at the end of the competition, beating out 21 other schools.
