Plastic cups whizzed along the hardwood of the Mon Valley School gymnasium Nov. 26, coming to a crashing halt as they whacked into one another. Some students cheered, while others let out a sigh.
Welcome to battle bots!
The Mon Valley STEAM program has continued to grow this school year and the recent battle bots proved it. The school gym was jam-packed with students and teachers cheering on the numerous competitors. The bots were actually Sphero baseball-shaped robots with every movement meticulously controlled by a student via tablet computer. Each Sphero was covered with a plastic cup and hand-decorated by the students. The event ended in a multiple tie for first place, but everyone truly was a winner. Congratulations to all!
