Three Camas Schools Compete in Robotics Invite!
Design, build and program a robot “dragster” to race down a narrow lane and accurately stop when it “sees” the finish line??! What kind of impossible challenge is that? One that the Robotics students of Camas High, Hayes Freedom High and Liberty MS gladly accepted! The students competed with their Dragsters, SumoBots and Line Racers at the Fifth Annual South Sound STEM Robotics Invite in Olympia last Monday.. This was the first time for any of the Camas schools to attend, and it was amazing! Lots of learning, teamwork and wins! Out of 10 high school teams competing, Camas students took home many of the awards! The top 2 finishers of each event were awarded a plaque:
Dragster, 1st: Alex Wolfe (driver) – CHS
Dragster, 2nd: Austin Schmunk, Tyler Allen – Hayes Freedom
Line Racer, 1st: Ian Pinch, Roberto Palma, Nathaniel Maszak – Liberty
Line Racer, 2nd: Michael Boyle, Nathan Chilian (builders), Lacy Dunlop (driver) - CHS
SumoBot, 1st: Kris Cocks, Ryan Wessel – CHS
The high school with the best overall team score was CHS, and was awarded a plaque as well! Hayes Freedom placed 5th overall and Liberty placed 6th overall.
In addition to the students above, other students helping generate the high team scores and standings at the tournament, were:
Camas HS Team – Justin Flint, Jeffery Liao, Brandon Cady, Justin Ang, Bryant Wilson, Lucas Wickizer, Sabastian Shideler
Hayes Freedom HS Team – Hunter Rukstad, Kyl Krecklow, Cassie Russell, Jeremy McCall
Liberty-Tech – Joseph Marugg, Alex Breuer
MANY THANKS to coaches Ron Wright, Kelly Williams, and Skyler Gillipse for their awesome leadership and continual encouragement! Helping us to “embrace the confusion” as we learned how the tourney worked were seniors Robbie Bruce and Jon Ausherman. And finally, especially, many thanks to the many CSD students who helped push these students to excel, but who couldn’t attend – 82 students in 4 classrooms at Liberty, Hayes Freedom, and Camas.
Coach Warden will be here on Tuesday, June 3rd at noon (during lunch) for an informational coach’s meeting. Bring a sack lunch or see Mrs. Harlan for an express lunch pass. Meeting will be held in the main gym.
