Corona Robotics Club

Welcome to our Robotics Club Page.

As part of our work at Corona, we offer students in 4th and 5th grade an opportunity to join our Robotics Club.   This STEM club provides our students an opportunity to develop 21st Century Skills that lead them to higher education

A Little Bit of History-

In the 2018-2019 school year Corona started our first robotics club with only six hopeful students.  It was late August and we had just found out that we had two weeks to build our first robot and get ready for our first competition. With a lot of determination, creativity, and hard work we built our first robot and named it Genesis. It represented the beginning of an amazing journey our school was embarking on. 

Our Accomplishments-

Wow, that was a lot for our first year, but we accomplished a lot as well.

We were able to compete against 35 schools in our area.  

We completed every task given to us and we won the STEM Research Project for our league.

We had the honor of going to the state level competition against 22 more school and we won the STEM research project again.

Now we get to go to Louisville, Kentucky to compete.

It Takes A Village-

During our building skills sessions, club members dedicate a lot of time building the robot following instructions from a manual without the help of the teachers. We have to work together to achieve our goal in a limited amount of time. So this is the time to practice our communication and collaboration skills. These sessions help us appreciate what each team member brings to the table. We also record our notes and draw design for new models in our engineering notebooks. Both final products are entered in the competitions and they can qualify us for different awards.

Our Goals-

Next year, our school will have 2 teams with at least 12 members in fourth and fifth grade.

We hope to grow the program to third grade students in the upcoming school year.
