Raytown C-2 Robotics team wins 6 of 9 matches

The Raytown C-2 Robotics team participated in its very first competition at the University of Missouri Kansas City (UMKC) First Team Robotics competition.  Winning 6 of its 9 matches, the team placed 6th overall in the competition which featured over 30 teams from four different states.

“All in all the students did a great job in their first competition, and I am very proud of their accomplishment,” robotics sponsor and Industrial Arts Teacher Steve Myer said.  “We will be working through the spring and summer to improve and look forward to taking our team back to UMKC for a second go around.”

The team, named Fire and Ice, is comprised of students from Raytown and Raytown South High School and formed in November of 2013.  

“The students had fun and the robot performed as you would expect any computer operated machine would,” Myer said.  “We had to constantly kick it to motivate it to do what we wanted, but it all worked out in the end.”
