Turkey Valley Robotics Team, the Trojanbots, competed in its second year at the Iowa Regional Event at the Mcleod Center in Cedar Falls March 22-25. The team record was 3-7-0 in official play this season, earning rank 50.
Robotics Team Coach Cameron Amos stated, “Our students did a fantastic job at manufacturing and programming their robot this year to get it ready for competition. During the build season, students broke up into different committees working on marketing, design, mechanics, electrical wiring and programming. The different committees collaborated together to build a successful robot that could complete all tasks within the competition: autonomous, grabbing inflated cubes and cones, placing these game pieces on shelves and pegs and balancing on the Charge Station (teeter-totter). We showed great growth and improvement from last year, and we are looking forward to preparing for next year’s competition.”
