Ever had a great idea? Something you’ve wanted to build or make happen – but don’t know where to start?
Oceanside High School Robotics Club empowers students to bring their projects to life.
On April 30th, Oceanside High robotics team participated in the annual Greater San Diego Botball Competition and took 5th overall out of 27 schools. Held at West Hills High School in Santee, the Pirate team built and programed two robots to independently (no remote controls) collect items and do specific tasks during a series of two minute competitions. For several of the OHS students, it was their first competition and they did an amazing job making it all the way to quarterfinals. The Builder Students team consisted of Brandon Mendez (10th), Amaya Govalkar, (11th), the Builder-Programmers, Ivy Galindez (10th), Programmer, Carina Martinez (12th), Documenter, Kevin Mendoza (9th), Builder and Joshua Philips (12th), Builder-Programmer.
In Fall 2015, Mathematics teacher Eric Lingua applied for a teacher’s grant from the OHS Foundation on behalf of the Robotics Club. Four hundred dollars was granted unanimously by the Foundation members in support of the club’s competition entry fee, field trips, and supplies.
Eric Lingua, the other Robotic team mentors Dustin Long, David Fogliatti, and Tim McFadden would like to thank the California Dept. of Education High School After School Safety and Enrichment for Teens Program (and Heather Lomelin and Tammi Wallace), Oceanside High School Foundation, Oceanside Rotary Club and OHS administration and facilities staff for allowing the team to work late on their projects.
