Shoreland hosts Wisconn Valley Vex Robotics competition annually

Elementary, middle and high school students from Wisconsin and northern Illinois unite each year at Shoreland Lutheran High School for the Wisconn Valley VEX Robotics Competition. The action-packed tournament features dozens of teams who compete with and against other schools in a series of back-to-back robotics challenges.

The tournament is made possible by donations from Gateway Technical College, Milwaukee School of Engineering, Wisconsin Lutheran College and the University of Wisconsin Parkside.

The VEX Robotics Competition is presented by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation, a global robotics program with more than 11,000 teams from 32 countries playing in over 750 tournaments worldwide.

Collin was a student in Shoreland’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Academy. “It did a really good job in giving me a glimpse of what I would see here,” says the college senior. In particular, Collin recalls the aerospace unit of a STEM course in high school that challenged students to design and create an airfoil, which is essentially a segment of an airplane wing. They then tested their creations in the school’s wind tunnel. Read his story
