Lego Robotics Competition Club
Quest has two competition clubs. One will be competing in the FLL and the FTC. FLL stands for the First Lego League, and the FTC stands for the First Tech Challenge. These clubs run most of the school year and are after school and compete on Saturdays. This year’s theme is The TRASH TREKSM Challenge. It asks teams to explore the hidden but fascinating world of trash, from collection, to sorting, to smart production, and reuse. They must also invent a solution to help our trash problem and create their own LEGO MINDSTORMS® robot to accomplish trash-themed “missions” on a playing field, and show how well they practice FIRST LEGO League Core Values.
Cyberpatriots Competition Club
CyberPatriot was conceived by the Air Force Association (AFA) to inspire high school students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation’s future. The competition puts teams of high school and middle school students in the position of newly hired IT professionals tasked with managing the network of a small company. In the rounds of competition, teams are given a set of virtual images that represent operating systems and are tasked with finding cyber security vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while maintaining critical services.
Rube Goldberg Competition Club
The Rube Goldberg Machine Contest is a contest in which students build devices to complete a simple task in a minimum of ten steps in the style of American cartoonist Rube Goldberg. Local contests are held throughout the United States, and local winners are eligible to compete in the national contest. We recently competed in the Weber State University hosted contest and won second place!
Robotics Competition Club
In this club, robots have to accomplish a task. Usually they have to beat other robots in order to become the best one. Other schools get together to compete all around Utah.
