- Community Schools
The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To this end, we are updating our reopening plan to begin the school year in a fully online-learning model for all students which will continue through the last week of September. All students in grades 1-12 will begin on August 18, kindergarten students will begin on August 20.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con este fin, estamos actualizando nuestro plan de reapertura para comenzar este año escolar en un modelo de instrucción completamente en línea para estudiantes hasta finales de septiembre. Hemos actualizado el calendario para que todos los estudiantes en los grados 1-12 comiencen el 18 de agosto, los estudiantes de jardin de infantes comenzarán el 20 de agosto.
WHO ARE WE?
Our VEX IQ Team, The Grand View Bison Bots consist of 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. Teams of four design and build VEX robots in order to compete in this year’s game.
CREATIVITY, COLLABORATION, and CODING
Students analyze form and function to build a robot that can score the most points given time and construction constraints. They fine tune their design by iterating and improving their design to increase scoring ability. In competition students work with alliances from all over to complete one-minute matches. Alliances discuss strategy and then work to score as many points possible collaboratively. In addition, students program their robots for autonomous rounds.
As part of their competitive season, students complete research geared towards solving real-world problems with robotics. Students identify a problem and develop a prototype as a solution based on their research. This is presented at tournaments to add to their overall score.
We hope that we can count on your help to make our Bison Bots, a success! Contributions can be made using this link: GV Robotics Donation
