Over the past two weeks we have had the opportunity to interview the following members of the grade 3-5 Robotics Club: Natalia Noviello, Nicole Noviello, Sofia Delle Cave, Gabriella Andreozzi, Mary McNeil, James Parris, Tyler Linehan, Greyson Diogo Sarah Donnelly, Donovan Tiernan and Azure Taeares.
The answers to the following questions are the team’s collaborative thoughts on their experiences.
Have you enjoyed robotics club?
Yes, it was super fun. We loved racing the robots against each other.
What did you do?
We worked on building a robot that rolls on wheels with the LEGO Mindstorms kit.
It looked like a remote controlled car.
Have you done anything with robotics before?
Most of us haven’t, but some of us have.
Why did you join the Robotics Club?
We joined robotics because we were curious about robotics and it looked like a fun club.
What is your favorite part? Why?
Racing the robots was our favorite part because it was fun to have a friendly competition.
Was there anything that you did not expect?
We didn’t expect to race the robots against each other. It was a pleasant surprise.
Do you think robotics will help you in the future?
Yes, we think robotics will help us in the future when we are older and might be working in a science field. If you are an architect then you have to know how to use instructions to build things. Also if you want to build a homemade robot then you would know how to do it.
Do you recommend the Robotics Club to others?
Yes, it is fun to build robots with your friends and learn about science together.
Thank you to all of the students that participated in the interviews.
