The JV team won the 1st Place Engineering Award, which is the team that best demonstrates innovation in design and provides the best evidence of documented engineering practices, 1st Place Professors Award, awarded to the team demonstrating the best STEM outreach that helps promote stem in their communities, and 3rd Place Overall in field competition.
The Varsity team won 4th place overall in field competition and 3rd place overall Champions Award.

Those team members are Dathan Ridings, Sean Paul Cope, Wesley Honeycutt, Samuel Dye, and Kirsten Kennedy.
Team mentors are Cindy Nickodam, Tonya Kennedy, and Jerry Robinette.
These students have come so far and have worked hard to learn engineering, coding, cad, and robot design. CONGRATULATIONS!
