Congratulations to the Alpine Vex IQ Teams who competed in the Vex IQ Elementary State Tournament in Loveland last weekend! We sent 6 teams of students to participate in this collaborative competition. We competed in the Teamwork Challenge in which two teams collaborate on the playing field in order to score points by manipulating the field blocks with their robot. In addition, teams had the opportunity to participate in several other competitions as well. Students could compete in the the Skills Challenge, where they tested out their robot's skills as compared to other teams.
Students at Northridge received an exciting treat to start off the New Year. It came in the form of an invitation to the very first Robotics Club meeting at their school. A total of 10 fourth and fifth graders were selected to participate in the club, which meets every Thursday afternoon in Northridge's STEM Lab. The students were introduced to VEX Robots during their first meeting. VEX is a company that allows students to work in teams to build robots and compete in challenges in a race against the clock.

On February 25th, Longmont High School's Medical & BioScience Academy (MBSA) students visited the Biomedical Engineering Program at Colorado State University. During their visit, they toured the newly-constructed Bioengineering Building, designed and built a prototype for a prosthetic foot, and learned more about the field of biomedical engineering from Dr. Kevin Lear, Director of the Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate Program.
