Coronado High’s Robo-sleigh Delivers Presents to Pre-Schoolers

Dozens of pre-schoolers gathered at Coronado High School to receive a gift from a friendly character riding on a sleigh. No, it wasn’t jolly Santa Claus on top of that motorized magical vehicle.

Thanks to the hard work of Coronado robotics students, the fully-operational sleigh featured a cute penguin instead of the red-clad gift-giver.

The robot sleigh was a hit among the pre-schoolers, who are part of Coronado’s CDL program.

The students sang “Jingle Bells” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” before the same high-school students who helped build the robot sleigh delivered presents to each good boy and girl in attendance.

Teacher Andy Mendoza said his robotics students build the sleigh as part of their hands-on studies on science, technology, engineering and math.
