Robotics Club

Welcome to our robotics page!

We are so excited and pleased to introduce our very first robotics club during the 2022-2023 school year at Taper. With the help from Los Angeles Robotics a California Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation and a grant through the Nelson Team Grants for SoCal VEX IQ Challenge teams, our Taper Tigers can participate and compete in the VEX IQ robotics program through The Rec Foundation (Robotics Education and Competition Foundation.)

With the continuously evolving technology and complexity of our world today, at Taper we recognize the need to equip our young scholars with the necessary skills and knowledge to evaluate and solve complex problems through effective and efficient solutions. Introducing robotics to our students is one positive way to begin building these vital and necessary skills, as it incorporates all four disciplines of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) it also builds and encourages teamwork, communication, and organizational skills.

 

Our robotics team is led by our 5th grade magnet teacher Mr. Corley as our head coach and our computer lab instructional aide Ms. Chavez as our assistant coach. With a five-student team assigned as programmers, builders, and drivers, the team builds a competition worthy robot to compete in three qualifying match leagues and a final Championship session. Teams are also asked to submit an engineering notebook detailing their designs and  ideas which the team will be judged on and participate in a team interview. Our team meets Mondays and Wednesdays after school.
