8-bit RAMs on Display

Recently Dr. Cox stopped by to check out the amazing work from our 8-bit RAMs FIRST Robotics Team. Despite the challenges of remote meetings, the team was able to connect with teammates and keep members engaged with virtual training and programming. Given that FIRST was unable to host in person events this year, the 8-bit RAMs submitted entries in three of their online competitions - Chairman’s Award, Innovation Challenge, and Game Design Challenge.  

The team’s recent collaboration with Dr. Schuchman’s Principles of Engineering Class features a revamp of the Transportation Department’s “Buster the Bus”.  Aside from demonstrating the in-progress robot, students shared their successes this season, focusing on outreach and plans to push into the elementary schools this coming fall. 

“We look forward to continuing our mission in expanding STEM throughout our community in the near future, and are excited to share our progress," said team member Ilyssa Lapp.
