Two Teams Compete in Robotics Competition
An exciting day on Saturday for several of our middle school students – two teams of 6th-8th graders participated in the AWT RoboBots JuniorBots Competition! Out of 27 teams from both Lake and Geauga Counties, one of our teams brought home 3rd PLACE and the other finished somewhere around 10th after being knocked out in the fourth round of competition. Members of the 3rd place team, Steel Spartans, included John A., Ethan D., Kaden M., Ty S., and Colby T. Their robot, Spartacus also received the competition’s Best Engineered Bot award! The 10th place team, Toxic Spinners, included Gabe H., Joseph K., Jamie M., and Michael W. They named their bot Hammerhead. Group advisor, middle school math teacher Deena Avalon, says she is so proud of the group for their efforts adding they all did a great job and had fun. In addition to Mrs. Avalon, we’d like to thank John Avalon, Anita Marlowe, and Claire Zurbuch for volunteering their time to advise the group, as well as Avalon Welding and Machine, LLC for being our industry sponsor! Great work everyone!
