Shiloh Middle Robotics Team Advances to Vex Robotics World Championship
The competition will be held in April in Anaheim, Calif.
On Saturday, February 16, 2013 the Shiloh Middle School Robotics Club
competed in the VEX Forsyth Middle School Qualifier held at Lambert High
School, in Suwanee, and won the Excellence Award.
The team is now eligible to compete in the Vex Robotics World Championship in Anaheim, Calif., April 17-21.
Shiloh Middle started their Robotics program three years, and have accomplished much in that short amount of time. They competed for the past three years in the First Lego League, and two years now in Vex Robotics.
The students are mentored by Dr. Sidney Rabsatt and sponsored by teachers Camelia Calvert and Dr. Calvin Horton. The majority of the funding for the program has been through bake sales, and this year Lockheed Martin and Cisco became the team's first corporate sponsors.
