Paul Palewics, Amber Collins, and Adrienne Flowers show off one of the team’s awards.

On Saturday, October 28, the GBMS Robotics Team took a ride on a bus for the Best Robotics  competition held at the University of West Florida. The team won a total of two awards:  First place for best t-shirt, and second place for marketing and presentation.

Ms. Titus was in charge of the team this year and will be in the year to come. To prepare for the competition, there were 16 practices. At the practices, many people would help make things for the 3-D booth, like paint cardboard stalks and paint bottles our school color. Students built the robot, which they named Dwayne “The Bot” Johnson, and some people practiced driving it for the competition. Other students made the marketing presentation. There were many people who were in charge of spirit and made shakers to cheer on our team for support. Also, there were photographers who took pictures of our practices and t-shirt designers who made the shirts for the team.

Mrs. Brothers was at the competition, and when asked to describe the competition in three words, she said “very super cool.” She also said that she enjoyed watching two kids giving directions to the driver of the robot to save the contest dummy, Manny, from an imaginary fire made of cups.

According to the BEST Robotics website, “BEST Robotics is a national six-week robotics competition in the United States held each fall, designed to help interest middle school and high school students in possible engineering careers.”

Brody Larson, team mascot, shows off his Robotics muscles.

Next year, students interested in being on the Robotics team should pay attention at the beginning of the year to find out the details of how to be in the club and the competition.
