Over the past Saturday, 6 MERITS sophomore participated in the UC Davis sponsored C STEM roboplay challenge competition.
As new entrants to the competition, our students had less than 3 months to prepare for the competition which included learning a programming language called Ch and using the coding to control linkbots to perform specialized tasks on a competition field. One such challenge was to program the linkbots to perform a mock house to house evacuation.
As the youngest team in the highest division against more experienced teams from other schools, our students held their own. Though they did not place overall, our MERITS squad was recognized by the judges for their teamwork, persistence and sportsmanship with the spirit of the competition award. Good job Lions, way to represent.
