Artemis

About the Team

Team Artemis is made up of the current members of Immaculate Heart Academy’s (IHA) robotics club. This past year has been IHA's first year with a robotics club, and we have already worked with many robots and programming platforms. Since the beginning of the robotics club, we have progressed from working with the following platforms:

Team Artemis is made up of the current members of Immaculate Heart Academy’s (IHA) robotics club. This past year has been IHA's first year with a robotics club, and we have already worked with many robots and programming platforms. Since the beginning of the robotics club, we have progressed from working with the following platforms:

  1. Arduino
  2. Mindstorm
  3. Darwin Mini

Our current project has involved learning how to pilot and work with a drone. As a team, we love mastering every new platform.
The members of Team Artemis are hard-working, strong, and motivated women. We all have a passion for robotics and hope to promote interest in technology in other young women. The MoonBot competition will be a great opportunity for us to expand our knowledge and skills in Robotics. We believe that this competition will be an amazing learning experience as well as a great team strengthening one. We are all ready to work hard and conquer the many challenges we will face. Team Artemis is determined to represent our school and make the most of this incredible experience.

Phase One

What inspires our team about the Moon is: 
Testimonial from someone who has viewed our tale: 

Team Artemis shared our video with Sacred Heart School in Jersey City, New Jersey.

A student commented, “Thanks for sending that awesome video! I learned a lot about the moon. I learned how to appreciate the moon more and how it supports the Earth’s axis.”
Another student added, ”This story was great and very educational. I learned lots about the moon. I really didn’t care about the moon but when I saw your video I learned how important it is.”

Since our moon tale was about a girl who did not appreciate the moon until Captain Artemis enlightened her, it is very meaningful to us to receive this feedback from the grammar school children. 
 The feedback from Sacred Heart was reinforced by an IHA freshman, who commented,

“This video was extremely well-designed and I feel that it would be very useful in teaching elementary school aged children about the moon! The drawing and editing done was fabulous and I learned that without the moon a day on Earth would last only about 6 to 8 hours. Good luck to the IHA Robotics team! - MM “

Our purpose is to bring renewed attention to the benefits of the moon and this feedback was very rewarding to our team.
