John Green Elementary Recognized as a Gold Ribbon School
Robo Rave International
Last weekend Feb 20th - 21st, Three kids Shreya Krishnan Grade 5, Deepika Puli Grade 5 and Jothika Puli Grade 5 from John Green Elementary School participated and won Second Place in Robotics competition “Robo Rave International” held in Fallon Middle School. They won second place in the Line Following Challenge.
Their challenge was to build an autonomous
robot that must follow a line to a tower, stop, deliver at least 1 ping pong
ball, and return to home under 3 minutes. They worked really hard
for 4 weeks and built an amazing robot with wheels, sensors, and code to
intelligently track the black line, delivery balls and return back to start
line. They faced many challenges during the completion which
required them to constantly redesign and recode the robot to perform the
competition they had the opportunity to meet and share ideas with kids from
other schools from Pleasanton, San Ramon and Fremont. They also had
the opportunity to chat with members from the NASA team on various projects and
efforts happening in NASA building Robots and Roovers for missions to
MARS. They had so much fun and learning during those 2
All thanks to their coach Rengan Krishnan dad of Shreya Rengan who coached and trained them to build the Robot, and win the competition.
