Robotics competitions are a useful teaching tool, allowing students to apply what they learn in class and helping them develop social skills through teamwork. In cooperation with the Harry Fultz Institute in Tirana, Albania our team implemented a robotics competition for high school students. We created and taught lessons on electronics, programming and mechanics to guide teams of student through the robotics design process. As students faced challenges constructing their robots we provided guidance through mentorship. Overall, the element of competition motivated the students and fostered a sense of achievement. Using student feedback, we refined our teaching methods and created a plan to expand and improve the Savage Soccer competition for the future.
