Polyvalente de Charlesbourg Students Build Robots for “Mars”

Students in the robotic concentration at the Polyvalente de Charlesbourg presented their project “Mission on Mars”. On a huge model reproducing the Red Planet’s surface, made by art students, were presented about 15 robot prototypes built with technical Legos.

Since fall, in an environment representing NASA, these teens were working hard to invent robots that could go on missions. They had eight choices such as: two temperature lectures, plant a flag, pick a metallic object with a magnet, climb a mountain. Throughout the technological conception, their French competencies were challenged since they had to write a report and mathematics were used as well.

This project is very impressive and students with learning difficulties participated. The robotics concentration, which started two years ago, is targeting motivated and creative people who like team work. This program was at first to increase the boys’ interest in school. Considering that the number of student signups for fall 2013 will push the board to have two classes, we can say that this is a success.
