Coronado High hosts scrimmage for new robotics game Feb. 14Coronado High will host a scrimmage Saturday, Feb. 14 for schools around the state with robotics teams.
The event will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the school auditorium. Coronado is at 1590 W. Filllmore St.
The event is free and open to the public.
One of the scrimmage teams is based at Coronado, overseen by applied technology instructor Gary Hilty. Coronado started its program in 2009. This is the second year it's also been open to high schoolers throughout District 11.
Robotics is an annual extracurricular activity for engineering-inclined students.
Every year in January a national organization called FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) releases a new game that can be played with robots that students need to build.
This year's game has a recycling theme, in which two competing teams' robots stack objects and even throw “litter” at each other's side to gain points.
