Converse students participate in regional robotics competition

On Saturday, November 5, over 120 middle and high school robotics teams from Northwest Louisiana, including Converse High School, converged at the Bossier Civic Center for the a Regional Autonomous Robotics Competition (RARC). RARC competitions challenge teams of up to six students to complete various tasks using student-built robots that must be pre-programmed by the students before coming to the competition mat. The challenges are linked by a central theme such as collecting natural resources on an unexplored island. A typical task may involve the robots retrieving items from various places on the mat through the use of light, sound, color, touch, or ultrasonic sensors, or the use of gears to increase speed or torque.
