Robots To Converge On Spanish River High

Spanish River High SchoolBOCA RATON, FL ( — One of the best ways to learn is to do — and an area afternoon middle school program focusing on robots, robotics and science is helping students do a lot — as they prepare for an upcoming “Robotics Extravaganza.”

According to Palm Beach County Schools:

The Middle School Afterschool Program is inspiring Middle School Robotics Teams to succeed in this year’s global First Lego League Challenge. The 11th Annual Robotics Extravaganza will take place at Spanish River High School on January 26, 2013 from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm.

The Robotics Extravaganza initiative is an opportunity for Middle School Afterschool Robotics teams to learn more about the work of professionals in that field. They encounter challenges similar to those faced by scientists and engineers as they identify a problem and develop an innovative solution.

It gives students a chance to take what they learn in the classroom and apply it through research, critical thinking, and creativity, and see how fun that can be. Exposure to different areas of science and technology will also introduce team members to new career options they might never have known about.

“We want to change the culture by celebrating the mind. We need to show kids that it’s more fun to design and create a video game than it is to play one,” said Inventor and Entrepreneur Dean Kamen.

This exciting tournament experience gives students the opportunity to participate in qualifying events and tournaments, to compete with their peers in high energy, sports-like events, to present their solutions to a panel of judges and receive award in the areas of research & presentation, robot design, robot performance and teamwork.

The Middle School Afterschool Program (MSAS) provides opportunities for personal enrichment and academic improvement through recreational activities, homework assistance, tutoring and social skills activities.  Thirty-six schools are part of the MSAS Program. More than 3,500 students are served daily.
