SMS Girl’s Robotics Team
The SMS girl’s robotics team, The Tinkerbelles, recently participated in Nationwide’s biweekly teaching on Thursday, March 5th. They got the opportunity to share their experiences with the team members at Nationwide in downtown Des Moines.
At Nationwide they presented about programming, building, as well as the different parts of their robot. They also got to explain what the First Tech Challenge (the event they participated in during their season) was and how it helped them become better engineers.
Their team is comprised of ten young women in grades 7-8. The team is coached by two fathers who volunteer regularly. The team is planning on participating in next year’s challenge as students at Timberline next fall.
