High School Robotics Team Demos the T-Rex

In March, the chapter held its monthly luncheon at the Peterson Air Force Base Club. The highlight of the luncheon was a presentation and demonstration provided by Team 662, Rocky Mountain Robotics. The team is made up of students from six different high schools in Colorado Springs District 20 and is filled with creative and motivated life-long learners. The students explained how they organize like a real business to design, engineer, manufacture and operate robots that solve stated game objectives over a six-week period. They then demonstrated one of their creations—the T-Rex. T-Rex is a remotely piloted robot capable of shooting a T-shirt more than 100 yards from its compressed air cannon. Team 662 says they build people who build robots while encouraging students to reach as high as they can dream. These remarkable young people clearly showed that they are fulfilling that goal. The future of STEM in the Rocky Mountain Region is bright!
