As part of the Geotech Conference, students in Mr. Halevy’s robotics classes will spend time with NASA science educator, Angelo Casaburri, learning elements of engineering design and programming to prepare for Saturday’s challenge robotic activity. Students will work together with visiting teachers to design a robot to explore the African continent without driving over the borders or into the surrounding oceans. The added bonus on Saturday is that keynote speaker and Mars Rover engineer, Kobie Boykins, will be guiding the projects throughout the testing phase.
