Robotics work at STEM3 Academy is held in the well-equipped Innovation Lab and Maker’s Space. Developmentally appropriate robotics programs are available in the elementary, middle and high school levels. The high school Robotics team entered the FIRST Robotics Competition in Spring 2015 and won the Rookie All-Star Award, with the team competing in the Championship in St Louis, Missouri!
Robotics is a powerful tool for teaching essential skills like collaboration and problem-solving. In addition to helping young people develop a variety of STEM-related abilities, it encourages engagement and excitement about the learning process.
The STEM3 Academy robotics program takes students with little or no robotics experience to being proficient in advanced programming and operation.
Team Knightrise was proud to participate in the 2015 FIRST Robotics Competition. In this competition, teams of up to 25+ students raised funds and built robots to perform prescribed tasks against competitors. Volunteer mentors lent their time and talents to each team allowing students to learn from professional engineers, programmers and adults.
Team 5678, Team Knightrise, participated in the Ventura Regional competition and won the Rookie All Stars Award, advancing them to the Championship Event in St. Louis. Their success was covered in LA Parent.
The team finished 59 out of 76 in the Tesla Division. We are so very proud of the work that Team Knightrise has done.
