Apopka High School wins StarBot Wars
By: Mike MacWithey, M.Ed.L
Before the break, Apopka High School took three teams to Lockheed Martin to compete in their annual Engineering weeks robotics competition. This year the theme was StarBot Wars. Of their three teams, two made it to the semifinals.
From the semis, the team of Chris Wisdom, Julianne Mazzaro, Jennifer Mendoza, Tim Ervin, Robbie Taylor, and Nick Leftridge advanced to the finals where they won the last round in dramatic fashion.
All of the Advanced Robotics students went on the field trip and built robots for the competition. All the students got an educational tour of the many exciting projects going on at the facility. It was a great day and a beautiful thing!
