Robots meet the mainstream

The Angelbotics — Denver East High School’s robotics club — hosted about 40 middle-and-high school robotics teams for Colorado’s Energy Day Festival on Sept. 25. The robotics teams came from across the state to participate in the festival’s Kendrick Castillo Memorial Tournament, which pits robot against robot.

The Angelbotics is a year-round extracurricular activity. The team consists of about 40 students, freshman through senior, who are divided into four subteams — public image, which designs the t-shirts and website for the team; strategy; programming; and manufacturing. The subteams make it so that each student can participate in the club, no matter their talents or skills, said Joel Noble, Angelbotics’ coach and engineering teacher. The team has art and business students, as well as those interested in STEM careers, Noble added.

Colorado’s Energy Day Festival is an annual event and always takes place at East High School, 1600 City Park Esplanade. It could not take place last year because of COVID-19.

Noble said he is extremely proud of the students’ accomplishments, following a year and a half of uncertainty, including not knowing what would happen to teams such as the Angelbotics.

“The kids have done some really amazing stuff,” Noble said. “They kept the team together. They made it happen.”
