South Haven Competes in Robotics Challenge

With 10 area middle schools from Kansas and Oklahoma represented, the second annual Robotics Challenge was held Friday, April 22 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Cowley College’s Sumner Campus in Wellington, KS. This year’s Robotics Challenge featured 25 teams and 124 students.

Schools represented at the challenge were Attica, Belle Plaine, Chaparral, Caldwell, Clearwater, Oxford, South Haven, Wellington Christian Academy, Wellington, and Blackwell (OK).

Partners of the Robotics Challenge are Cowley College, KanOkla, Sumner Cowley Electric Coop, and Sumner County Economic Development.

The partners were awarded a $5,000 grant from the Foundation for Rural Service (the philanthropic arm of NTCA-The Rural Broadband Association). Sumner County Commissioners and other companies provided donations to purchase products for the second annual Cowley College Robotics Challenge.

The products were given to the middle schoolers and provided them the opportunity to learn to write computer programs, code, be creative, learn to work as a team, follow complex directions, be detail-oriented, make better decisions, and solve problems.

Each team had to build a robot and perform three tasks with their robot. Every member of the team had to have some task to perform in making their robots work. The South Haven team did not win the Robotics Challenge, but are excited to try again next year! Thanks to the sponsors for this great event!
