Tucker Ellis nurse paralegal Harpal Rai recently co-coached The Coding Knights, a Robotics team of nine- and ten-year-olds affiliated with the Aurora School System, at Austintown Districts. Robotics is a global event with teams that compete around the world, focusing on a specific challenge. It encourages children from all backgrounds and experiences to participate, and champions girls to take on the field of engineering and computer science. To address the 2017 challenge, Hydrodynamics, Harpal's team chose to improve the natural filtration of water.

Robotics focuses on:

  • Core values (respect, having fun, inclusivity, gracious professionalism, teamwork, and cooperation)
  • Research project presentation (utilizing the scientific method and identifying a problem and providing a solution that is either innovative or an improvement upon an existing solution)
  • Robot design (how they built the robot and attachments, including motors and programming)
  • Robot board challenges (involving programming and executing challenges for points)
