WHS Robotics Comps

The WHS Robotics group has a series of autonomous robotic competitions each year. Here's videos from those events.

These competitions force the students to think to solve the problems of the competitions. Which is a great thing.

Each team is playing for a pizza party for each monthly event win, and the team that wins the most games wins a college level robotic prize.

Navigate around while avoiding obstacles with ultrasound, infrared light and air pressure based bumper sensors.
