Orr at the Vex Robitics Olympics!

At the 2018 Vex Robotics Olympics, teamwork is a vital key to success. Our teams worked on programming robots, having them work autonomously, and a STEM research project. The best part is competing in front of hundreds of people and trying to do your best. There were other activities teams could play while waiting for their turn to compete. There was a forklift simulator, marshmallow tower building contest, safety challenge, and 3-D games. Going to the competitions at Faith Lutheran and East Career and Technical Academy was fun. We hope to be on the robotics team next year.
