On February 27th, the team from MOT Charter High School won the Excellence Award at the Delaware VEX Robotics State Championship. Teams from all around the state competed to win one of three bids to the world tournament in Louisville, Kentucky in April.
This award is a direct result of our student centered learning efforts as a staff and the first year engineering course. The robot’s design, recording the process and results in the engineering journal, communicating their design process to a panel of judges, and efficiency of the design were major factors the judges considered.
Congratulations to the MOT Charter Robotics Team: Hunter Middleton, Hayden Littleton, Nick Ulizio, Tyler Rouwhorst, Abieshek Subramaniam, and Nick Newill (with John Tucker serving as an alternate). Special thanks to teacher and team coach, Richard Lynch for his leadership.
