Ojai Valley School’s two robotics teams, the Spudniks and the Pythons, recently participated in the Greater Los Angeles FIRST Tech Challenge.
This is the high school’s first attempt at launching an academic robotics class along with an extracurricular club, and both are part of a larger effort to integrate science, technology, engineering and mathematics (S.T.E.M.) across all grades levels.
Though the Pythons and Spudniks didn’t emerge among the top finishers, they are excited to apply what they’ve learned to their next competition, slated for Jan. 18 in West Hills, Calif.
