What About Bot? Robotics in the Elyria Schools
Show Notes

We're hearing from the masters in this episode on robotics. Elyria High School 10th grade students, Kloe Koepp and Ethan Boyes, and Robotics Coach, Mike West, take us through the intricacies of competitive robotics at the middle and high school levels. The Elyria Robotics teams are young in years of existence but ageless in their expertise. The students involved can speak to the highest levels of coding, building and chronicling their robot adventures. In the realm of robotics, these students are engineers, programmers and statisticians. More importantly though they are helpers, cheerleaders, problem solvers and friends. Elyria's robotics teams are highly successful, earning hundreds of local, regional, national and even world titles. But as much as the students are aiming to win, they're just as happy to help each other out in a bind or assist other teams they're competing with. Elyria Robotics is recruiting now for new team members at the middle and high school levels. Let Kloe and Ethan tell you why Elyria Robotics is for YOU!
