UHA’s middle school Robotics Team is composed of selected 6th, 7th, and 8th graders who compete with EV3 robots through the First Lego League. Teams must research a real world problem and propose a creative solution, display teamwork skills, explain the innovative design of their robot, and complete robot missions while working against the clock. UHA’s team, the BlazerBots, most recently won first place in research while competing at the state FLL competition held at Northern Kentucky University on February 4, 2017.
Members include Zach Wilson, Ben Stone, Tommy Graham, Caleb Johnson, Zohaib Iqbal, Ty Hunt, Isha Patel, and Rohan Desai (not-pictured; competing at the Regional Governor’s Cup Competition).
The team is coached by Tracie Atwood and Barbara Kissner.
