Dueling Robots

Congratulations to our winning robotics team, VexRobotics, on being named champion of the recent mini classroom competition! The student-designed robots were awarded points for pushing tennis balls to the opponent’s side of the arena and extra points for getting them in the bucket. The victor was determined after three, two-minute matches. The winners will receive Penguin Points for use in the cafe.
The group has been working with and scrimmaging against student teams at nearby Oakmont Regional High School over the fall term and during the winter and spring terms, will focus on building competition robots for the Vex Competition Gateway. Cushing will be represented by four teams during the competition (hosted at Oakmont) and will face off against 24 other schools and their custom robots.
