HCA students heading to robotics competition

A group of Heritage Christian Academy home school students are going to get to show their robotic skills Saturday at Tennessee Tech. 

Nine students, ages ranging from 11-14, will compete in the First Lego League state competition this weekend after a week and a half of programming a Lego robot, which they named Frodo, to do certain tasks. 

“It’s been a good experience with them learning how to work together as a team,” said Karen Ward who is helping the kids through the process. 

The students are using their Lego NXT Mindstorms Kit to program their robot to solve problems that have to do with seniors and aging. They have to program the robot through their computer to do certain activities and complete certain tasks. 

Mark Ward, one of the students who is doing the programming, said the process can be difficult because you have to redo the programming over and over. If your measurements and calculations are slightly off, it throws off the whole presentation. 

“We have to decide what order to do them in as well,” said Mark Ward. The order must be worked out so they can get as many tasks done as possible. Ward said there is lots of “debugging.” Karen Ward said it is very rare for a team to finish all of their tasks. 

The members of the team are Caleb Lamott, Andrew Lamott, Alex Noack, Mark Ward, Jonah White, William Boyd, Jacob Berry, Jeremy Beaman and Christian McMahel. 

If they win in Cookeville Saturday, they will move on to international competition in St. Louis, Mo.
