VEX Robotics Class coming to New Britain High School

VEX Robotics Class coming to New Britain High School

The VEX Robotics Class is designed to allow students of varying abilities to learn the basics of engineering, design and programming. It will coincide with the VEX curriculum and VEX Competition called Swept Away. The class itself is designed to teach students about engineering and engineering problem solving. We will walk through 12 units that help students grasp mechanical function principles and basic programming for the more advanced.

Part way through the course the students are exposed to the Swept Away game and issued their VEX kits to begin their build. From there students use Autodesk Inventor or SolidWorks software to help design a competition ready robot. Sprinkled within the curriculum students will meet engineers who will assist them with their build and talk to them about their experiences in the real world. The course ends with a tournament style finish as the students put their designs to the test in an 8’ by 8’ arena where they play the “Swept Away” game in teams of 2-4.

Senior students at NBHS create promotional video

The NEASC Accreditation Team continued their visit at New Britain High School. Throughout the day, they shadowed various students and held more group interviews with teachers and staff throughout the building.

On Sunday, they began their visit and received an overview of the school. During the presentation, they viewed a video that was created and produced by NBHS Senior Raven Soumpholphakdy. Last week, he and other seniors asked administration if they could prepare a video for the NEASC committee. After receiving permission, they did everything by themselves - scheduling interview and film sessions, production time and more. 

Special thanks also goes to Lauren Lewicki, Margaret Keithline, Debbie-Marie Brown and Sal Germano for helping and participating!
