Lawsonators Robot Team

Contact: Laura Marshall, lmarshall7411@pcssd.org

The Lawsonator Team builds robots & a new field platform each year, based on the VEX IQ standards. The team practices after school once a week & twice a week a month before a competition. Competitions are all over Arkansas and we try to compete in as many central AR competitions during the season. The qualifications to make the team include an application and try out. Lawson Elementary also has a club day which students may sign up for during school hours, but that does not mean they are automatically on the team. Parent involvement is a must as well, so the student and parents must sign a contract that they will be able to drive the student to and from the competitions, pick up from after school practice, and provide snacks for the after school program. There are many responsibilities. Donations and grants finance the program.
