The Blkrobot Project: Updates
Tomorrow, one of the BlkRobot Project’s robotics teams embarks on a two month journey! Watson Hall Montessori school’s upper elementary class is participating in the Pan African Robotics Competition (2021), which is online and requires our team to write code to navigate our robot through a tour of the African continent. We were hopeful that we would be able to do this in person, but we are excited about the platform that the PARC team developed for this challenge and the Montessori crew has been all questions, now we get to hit the road.
