The Vex Robotics TN State Championship was held in Brentwood, TN on March 6 and 7. Two upper school and six middle school teams attended. Our middle school team with Sujay Mukatira '25, Parker McClain '24, Gavin Allen '24, and Elijah Palmer '24 won the STEM Research Project, which earned them an invitation to the World Championship. They researched how robots are used in the field of science, particularly in data collection, and designed a drone bat that would use various sensors to collect data where humans may not be able to travel. Jacob Gettig '20 and Kagan Sears '21 won the Build Award which recognizes a well-constructed robot. Their skills score was 8th in the state, which also earned them an invitation to the World Championship. Despite cancellation of the World Championship, this was very exciting news as it was our 5th year to have a team win an invitation to the World Championship, and our 1st year for both an upper school and middle school team to earn a spot!
Additionally, Elizabeth Crane '20 was selected for the Student Advisory Board for the Robotics Education and Competition Foundation. It was also the last competition for our seniors Allison Evans, Elizabeth Crane, and Jacob Gettig, who were founding members of the RoboGryphs in their 8th grade year. They will be leaving a huge hole to fill!
