The Robotics Club competed in the Mini-Urban Challenge on March 9th. The National High School Robotics Competition is sponsored each year by the Doolittle Institute and Air Force Research Laboratory. The competition is held at Wright State University’s Nutter Center in Dayton, Ohio. This year, the club received 2nd place in the Presentation Portion of the competition and 4th place overall!

The Robotics Club is thankful for Professor Carl Hilgarth, Department Chair of Engineering Technologies at Shawnee State University, for his role and his students that served as our mentors. Caleb Heidenreich and Jacob Pfeifer both involved in and studying Engineering at Shawnee State University met with our team during after school meetings held twice weekly and accompanied us to Wright State University, to assist the team. Of course none of this would have been possible without the dedication of our sponsors Mrs. Kuhn and Mr. Gibbs.
