This weekend, a team of Justice Intermediate School students and another team of students from Frances Slocum Elementary School will compete at a Unified Robotics competition in Upland.
The students have been working on building and coding their robot for several weeks, and now they will join other teams from the area to test out their creations!
The event will start at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, at Taylor University’s Kesler Student Activities Center in Upland. The event is open to the public and admission is free!
The competition is part of the Special Olympics Indiana Unified Champion Schools program. Unified Robotics is a student designed program bringing STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) to students with and without intellectual disabilities. Partners work together as a team to design, build, and program their own robot.
Marion Community Schools is proud to be a part of the Unified Champion Schools program, and we wish our students the best of luck this weekend in the competition!
