While it may have been Spring Break, Peachtree Ridge Robotics Team 1261 never stopped roaring loud and proud! The Robo Lions have yet again topped the charts with a shattering win at the Kennesaw District Event, competing with a total of thirty-five other in-state teams. Having been selected by alliance captain 1746 OTTO Robotics from Cumming, Ga and working alongside alliance partner 5812 Drewbotics from Riverdale, Ga, the teams proved indestructible scoring a whopping 154 points in the final match! With cutting-edge vision tracking that allowed for precise high goal shots, aggressive driving skills that dominated the field, and precise laser sensors set for perfection, the team won the Excellence in Engineering award for the remarkable features on their robot.
On top of this astonishing win, the Robo Lions have qualified for the State Championships to be held in Stegeman Coliseum at the University of Georgia this week and are expecting to qualify for the World Championships to be held at the end of April in St Louis, MO. With the travel and entry costs for World Championships standing at $35,000, the team needs help from our community in order to raise the necessary funds!
