  • Robotics competitionCMS VEX Robot Team Competition

    Date: January 22, 2018

    The Cawley Vex team’s first competition was an overall success!  “Learn by doing” was definitely the theme of the day, and the kids jumped right in, even though everything was new. They got to see how these competitions work, and started developing a strategy for how to best compete. Their robot went through a couple of design variations during the day as they figured out what worked and didn’t work— in one of the early matches their claw attachment actually fell off! All in all, it was a great day and they all had fun. Our team ended up finishing...

Please do not pull into the parking lot to have your child enter or exit the vehicle. This is very dangerous, as cars are pulling into parking spaces and some backing out of spaces. Students face an additional hazard when they...
