From August 26th to December 9th, 2017, Cinco ranch High school teamed up with Seven Lakes High School to put together a series of live broadcasts to Onslow, Australia- over 16,000 miles away from Katy, Texas.
Our goal was to foster curiosity, inspire discovery, and educate others about robotics with the help of each school’s FLL and VEX teams. The students in Onslow learned how to build both Ev3 and VEX robots from scratch, code them in their respective languages, experiment, and drive them- the result of over 70 hours of filming, editing, planning, broadcasting, and mentoring.
This project has impacted both sides of the globe positively by providing a one-of-a-kind STEM learning experience that will last a lifetime- and the cooperation between schools has taught us what it truly means to be part of a single robotics community.
"...You guys have been very helpful... You are very patient even with the communication problems we have at times, we really appreciate all the hard work and effort you guys put into this- Thank you for that." -A mentor broadcasting from Onslow, Australia on our last day of the Onslow Project.
We couldn’t have done it without our sponsor, Bechtel, who helped us achieve innovation spanning continents. The VEX and FLL teams of Seven Lakes would like to thank you, and hopefully, we can continue to change students lives, one robot at a time, no matter where in the world they are.
