Oswego Robotics Team at IL Principals Conference

Oswego  Robotics Program at the Illinois Principals Association Fall Conference

Students with the Oswego Robotics program demonstrated robots at the Illinois Principals Association fall conference in Springfield. The student group was one of three Illinois school groups there representing “STEM in our Illinois schools”.

The students met and talked with the Illinois State Superintendent of Educations, Tony Smith. They discussed the idea of expanding FIRST Robotics (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) into every school in the state. Superintendent Smith was very interested in hearing about how robotics in SD 308 has helped develop engineering skills, project management, presentation skills, and teamwork. This was a great opportunity for the students to proudly display their accomplishments and discuss ways to expand their experience to others.
