Ambridge Boys Golf vs Montour Boys Golf.

The golf teams were taking a moment of silence followed by Mr. John Tucci leading the singing of the Marine Corps anthem and America the Beautiful. The teams were taking the time to honor the fallen and remember all our men and women in the armed forces, firemen, paramedics, and police forces, who dedicate their lives to service, on this sacred day of September 11. May we always remember.

Young Minds enjoy the 3rd Annual Summer Robotics Camp

Jedi vs. Sith

AMBRIDGE, PA.  Ambridge Area High TSA/Robotics club hosted a successful summer camp!  Seniors, Robbie Fisher and Matt Eger, coordinated the 3rd annual Summer Robotics camp along with club co-advisors Mrs. Holmes and Mr. Holmes.  The camp was held in the High School June 16- through the 19th . Fourteen (14) boys and girls from Economy, State Street and Highland in grades 4-7 attended the Star Wars themed camp wanting to learn something fun and exciting, while spending time with their friends. 

The robotics camp used the popular Lego NXT Minstorms robots, which allowed the kids to build different designs to complete the daily task. The kids needed to be logical thinkers, as the robots only did what they were programmed to do.  The kids worked in teams of 2-3 to construct, program and test their robots.  It was a lot of fun to watch the teams compete against each other in friendly battles.  When asked if the camp was fun, the kids replied “YES! YES! YES!” and that is what it is all about. 

Camp Directors, Rob and Matt planned a packed 4 day camp. The days consisted of activities that challenged them to think in different ways.  Day one: Pod Race-Construct a robot that can quickly navigate a maze, moving forward, backwards, and turn in both directions. Day two: Adjust the robots to be autonomous—that is using sensors to “think for itself” based on the programming the team develops. The kids really enjoyed being told to scream at their robots to run a relay race as fast as their voice was loud. Day three and four: Jedi vs. Sith in a battle bots competition and a pizza party with parents, family and friends.

The NXT’s are a great way to introduce Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) concepts in a fun and exciting way.  Several kids computed circumference for exact amount of distance traveled by their robot, instead of simply guessing and other found it beneficial to gear their robot or change its design to improve maneuvering.

Overall, the kids had a great time and it was a tremendous group of kids to work with.  The club would like to thank the school and parents for the ongoing support!  Ambridge Robotics strives to provide opportunities for young minds and looks to continue the summer camps! Hope to see you next summer!
