Robo Critters

On Thursday, June 7th, the students and staff of IHMS went down to the gym to watch a group of grade 6 students race battery operated vehicles (called “Robo Critters”) around a predetermined track set up on the gym floor.

 

These vehicles were made about a week earlier from a kit that required assembly (each grade 6 student paid $12.00 for their kit). Mrs. Tycholis, the school’s Guidance Councellor, brought in an instructors to explain the process of building a Robo Critter to the students.

 

The students spent a few days practicing how to operate their vehicles, and on Thursday June 7, a few of the better students raced their vehicles against each other to determine an ultimate classroom winner.
