Robotics Teams Recognized by School Board
(05-28-2010)

The robotics teams from Northshore High School and Mandeville High School were recognized before the School Board at its May meeting for their outstanding work during the year that led to wins at regional competitions and participation in the national and world competitions.

Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction Cheryl Arabie introduced the teacher mentors, sponsors, and team members from both schools at the meeting, saying that Northshore and Mandeville had won several awards in regional competition in Westwego, then went on to the world championships in Atlanta, GA.

Both teams ranked well among the field of 86 teams in Atlanta. The Board was thanked for its support of the programs, along with the many sponsors who made the efforts financially possible.

“Robotics competition is a unique varsity sport designed to help high school students discover how interesting and rewarding the lives of engineers and researches can be,” Mrs. Arabie explained. “It combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology.”

High school students in St. Tammany Parish Public Schools have participated in robotics programs for several years. The competitions call for strict limitations of time and resources, with teams of 25 students working together to raise funds, design, build and program robots to perform assigned tasks. “It is as close to real-world engineering that a student can get,” Mrs. Arabie stated.
