Students Take Nine Medals in Competition
Students at Sandhills Classical Christian School took home nine medals in the UNC-Pembroke Robotics Olympics this month.
The competition required the SCCS team to participate in three challenges using the Lego Mindstorm robots they built and programmed.
Science teacher Mary Leusink said the robotics club students have worked diligently since October to improve their programming skills. The club improves students’ critical thinking and reasoning skills.
Students Chase Gyles, Kevin Landers, Nathan Leusink, Andie Schaible and Nick Wolcott make up the medal-winning Lion-Bots.
The school was eligible to participate thanks to a grant for robotics training Leusink attended last summer.
