NASA Explorer School -- Robotic Competiton

An exciting part of our three year history as the only NASA Explorer School in NJ has been offering our Junior High students a chance to explore the world of Lego robotics. Woodbury students thrive in a class in which they work in teams to design and compete with original robotic creations.

This year, robotics teacher Ari Ford has arranged for some of his most capable students to participate in the 2006 Philadelphia BEST (Boosting Engineering, Science and Technology) Robotics Competition.

“Game Day” is scheduled for Saturday, November 18th (9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.) and will be hosted by Villanova University in Villanova, PA.

A preview date in September will allow the team to receive a glimpse of the competition field, a kit of returnable and non-returnable parts for building their robot, and guidelines for Game Day.

Last year, teams from as far away as West Virginia and Connecticut competed in this event.

Good luck to our Woodbury engineers!
