The Templeton Middle School Junior Robotics team wrapped up its season Nov. 10 with a strong showing at regional competition in Watertown. Junior Robotics is an afterschool program that challenges students to work cooperatively to develop engineering solutions to problems that affect everyday lives.
The theme of this year’s competition was “Senior Solutions.” Students designed, built and programmed robots to complete challenges on a “Senior Solutions” themed board.
In addition to robotics, students researched and developed solutions to problems that people face as they grow older. The Templeton Blue Team developed a modified cutting board with a special fixture to help people who have osteoarthritis make uniform cuts with a kitchen knife. The Templeton White Team developed a unique application for a touchscreen device that would help people with Alzheimer’s disease remember to complete daily tasks.
Templeton applied engineering and technology teacher Shannon Flaherty is the Junior Robotics advisor.
