Robotics Winners

Charlotte schools Mountain Island Elementary and Collinswood Language Academy finished 1-2 among 39 N.C. schools in the recent Western Carolina Robofest at Lenoir-Rhyne University.

Mountain Island’s four-student team of third-graders was the youngest at the event. Students through grade 8 participated.

The competition is intended to increase STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education opportunities for students. This year's theme was Senior Solutions. At the event, teams competed on a robotic course that featured many different tasks, designed to resemble difficulties a senior could face. The teams had to build Lego attachments to add to the robot to help complete as many of the missions as possible in 2 minutes, 30 seconds.

Cornelius Elementary received a trophy for second place in project presentation.
