London Elementary recently received a grant from Entergy for just under $2000.00 to enhance their Robotics team. The money will provide the team with two new laptops (the laptops will be used for coding) a new super kit, a rolling tool chest and add on parts for robotics kits.
Part of each VEX IQ competition requires that students code the robot to run autonomously and score points. The new super kit will allow the team to create a second robot!
A second robot gives them the ability to simulate a
competition during practice and can also give them a choice of robots for competition.
The London Robotics team is in its second year and has had great success so far.
In their first year they earned the Judge’s Award at the UALR tournament, and they have qualified for the state tournament.
The London Robotic Team is currently ranked 6th overall in the state!
The team and coaches would like to thank Entergy for their
generous grant and partnership with London Elementary and their support of Russellville Schools!
