STUDENTS FROM HIGH SCHOOL BATTLE BOT COMPETITION UTILIZE T-SLOT ALUMINUM
Last month, a group of students from Lake High School reached out to Industrial Profile Systems for help with an extracurricular project they were working on. The group of students opted-in to compete in a Battle Bot competition. This competition allows students involved in STEM related fields to compete against each other, in a collaborative group setting, for additional education and fun in robotics. The competition was created to mirror the former running T.V. series, “Robot Wars”. Lake High School has been wanting to create a STEM related program to engage their curious minded students for quite some time. With the help of a small surplus, the school could finally fund the competition.
Shown above are the group members interviewed (names correlate in order of person shown left to right): Dave (will be attending the University of Akron – aspires to be an electrical engineer or in computer science related field), Jacob (will be attending the University of Akron – aspires to be in a computer science related field) and Alex (will be attending the Ohio State University – aspires to be in a bio-engineering field).
Industrial Profile Systems sponsored this ambitious group, hoping to get them one step closer to achieving their mission of reining victorious in the Battle Bot Competition. Sponsoring this event wasn’t enough. Lake High School is the only competing school in the area involved in this project. After finding this out, we strived to make a difference in bringing awareness to this promising project. One small, but impactful way we did this was reaching out to the local newspaper for more local support. The local newspaper ended up featuring this competition, helping increase awareness.
