Kenton Robotics team members competed in lightweight self-controlled sumo, mini sumo, non-tactile maze and bot ball challenges at the National Robotics Challenge in Marion, Ohio on April 9-11, 2015. Kenton’s lightweight sumo earned the bronze award in the high school division. The team also won four Sparkfun Mini Inventor Kits for Kenton High School by being the first team to complete a cryptanalysis challenge using USB powered radio transmitters.
Kenton High School robotics is a co-curricular activity in which students studying computer programming can choose to participate. Robotics requires students to apply science, technology, engineering and mathematical skills to build and program robots for competitive challenges.
The team would like to send special thanks to Honda of America Mfg., Robinson Finn, Root Lumber, and Kenton High School Principal Mr. Rick Abbott for their support this school year.
