VES Robotics Team Travels to Charlottesville to Compete

The VES Robotics team attended their first tournament on Sunday in Charlottesville. They competed against 40 teams from Virginia, DC, and West Virginia and earned third place for the Control Award for their programming. The team has been working hard designing and building a robot that places small cones onto tall poles. The competition also includes an autonomous self-driving component which involves writing code to process images that direct the robot to perform a specific action. The robotics team is currently re-designing the robot base and grabber in preparation for their second competition this Saturday in Harrisonburg.  The event is free and open to the public.
