Summer Robotics Camp
Our summer robotics camp is an annual educational camp put together and run by the high school students from the Alpha+ Robotics team to introduce kids to the joys of computer programming and robotics, as well as help kids learn teamwork and critical thinking skills.
This year, our team attended the Idaho Regional in Nampa, where after a valiant effort, we had an exciting finish in the semifinal rounds.
We were awarded the Autonomous Award, which celebrates a team’s reliable, high-performance robot operation during autonomously managed actions.
Our team member, Clinten Hopkins, was also selected as a Dean’s List Finalist. The Dean’s List Award, named in honor of FIRST founder Dean Kamen, recognizes students who have helped increase awareness of FIRST Robotics in their schools and communities while achieving personal and technical expertise and accomplishment. Clinten got to attend the FIRST Robotics World Championship in Houston, Texas, where he proudly represented his team, school, and community.
