PSUSD presents the second Elementary and Middle School Robotics Tournament. There are teams from nine elementary schools and four middle schools competing to win the big prize. Showcasing their work to their fellow students in Palm Springs but also there was a live stream available for the community to support and enjoy.
Students from first to eighth grade competed in this robotics tournament.
The district's educational technology coordinator said "They're playing in teams to compete and so it's based on time, and they have to complete obstacles".
The theme of the dayThe students were models of perseverance.
Christoper, a student at Desert Springs Middle School said: "so for me it was easy but for other people it might be a little hard but you just gotta ugh try and not give up".
Viviana, a student at Desert Spring Middle School said: "so there was this wheel like there was this marble that was causing a little trouble with going up the ramp, which was one of the missions and so I gave this idea to make a wheel like this tiny wheel that would make it easier to go up the ramp".
The determination of the students was admirable and definitely an event you did not want to miss.
A very hands on teacher, Clint Wyatt, the Digital media and coding teacher shares a call to action --- "get involved. Community is everything. So it takes a village, and we just want to welcome you to our village".
