Center Grove HS Robotics Team Advances to World Competition
Red Alert Robotics Team 1741 of Center Grove High School will compete in the World Championships in St. Louis, MO April 24-27.
Over the weekend, Red Alert Robotics did very well at the Boilermaker Regional Robotics Competition at Purdue University. The goal for each robot is to shoot Frisbees into slots and then climb a metal pyramid scoring as many points as possible. After three days of matches against teams from all over the U.S., Red Alert made it to the final round Saturday, where it came up just short to a team led by a school from Hawaii. However, Center Grove’s team won the competition’s most prestigious award. The team was honored with the Chairman’s Award. Winning that award automatically qualifies Center Grove to advance to the World Championships.
The team was very proud to partner with Perry Meridian that allowed both teams to win awards. They are now looking forward to the early April Rose-Hulmon event where they hope to enjoy some “coopertition” with Carmel High School.
Additionally, Center Grove High School Junior Mariah Smith was selected for the Dean’s List Finalist Award at the Boilermaker Regional. This award is similar to the very prestigious National Merit Scholarship Award winners.
Congratulations also go to Team 234 – Perry Meridian for their Engineering Inspiration Award. And to Team 868 – Carmel for being Regional Winners and winning the Industrial Design Award.
