The Tindley Trailblazer Robotics team competed in the St Joseph District Event at Penn High School in Mishawaka, IN this weekend. This year’s game is called “Destination: Deep Space” and the team’s robot had to climb down from a platform, carry and place “cargo” to score points, carry and place “hatch panels” to keep the “cargo” in place, and climb back up on the platform. The students had six weeks to build a 100-lb, 4-foot tall robot to accomplish these tasks. The team consistently ranked in the top half throughout the weekend, finishing qualifying matches in 13th place (out of 42 total teams). The robotics team will be competing again at the Center Grove District Event March 29-30. They hope to rank even higher and make it to the playoff matches. Also at the Center Grove District Event, junior Nyla Terry will be competing against young women across the state for the Dean’s List Finalist Award.
