The final match of the Vex IQ robotics league season saw our teams continue to improve while having fun and learning about STEM concepts. The five runs the students participated in were all solid with both teams having their best runs of the season tonight! Both of our teams were awarded a trophy for STEM research. I am so happy our teams had a chance to participate in this program and that I had the chance to get to know the students.
Both robotics club teams had much higher average scores this week. Each team scored more then a third of their total points this week. This was enough to move the Black Mambas into the top 5! The overall improvement of the students in driving their robots has been astounding.

Final Season Thoughts
Thank you to all parents and students for your involvement in this program. Also thanks to the administration and Phillip for making it such an awesome time for students to learn valuable skills that they will be able to take with them throughout life.
With the upcoming changes to the program I will only be the direct coach of a much smaller group. I hope that I can still be involved coaching with all of the students in some capacity but we will have to see how things work out. Thanks again students, I really appreciate your participation in the robotics club and allowing me to be a part of it.
