On Saturday, December 9th, the Middle School Robotics Club joined it's first ever competition at the W. R. Thomas Annual Robotics Open
. It was an amazing event with 32 teams competing. Club members have spent months working on their robot, practicing driving, and programming the robot to work autonomously. It was a big day for them!
This year's team, dubbed the Palmer Trinibots
, was made up of three members: Ben Arnold, Daniela del Rosal, and Jack Sulkes.
During the day-long event, the team competed in driving and programming challenges and earned 3rd place out of 32 teams! They also joined with other schools' teams during teamwork challenges and earned 2nd place out of 12 team pairs.
The Palmer Trinibots are now ranked 238th out of over 2800 VEX IQ competition teams worldwide, and 20th out of over 275 teams in the state of Florida! This group truly is amazing and is looking to move up quickly in the world of robotics.
