County robotics teams bring home multiple awards from Chattanooga

The Johnson County Middle School Robotics Team brought home two top awards at the competition this past week in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The first was the design award, which is awarded strictly on the engineering design journal documenting the engineering design Process, engineering methods, and teamwork.
The teams were also awarded the judges award that is based on judges interviews.  Teams were scored on how well they answered judges’ questions regarding individual contributions to the engineering design process, teamwork, and professionalism. Mrs. Quave, Mr. Sentell, Mrs. Henson, and Mrs. Eggers are extremely proud of the hard work, determination, and professionalism shown by the middle school robotics team. The next competition is in Dandridge on February 11th, followed by the state competition in March.
The Johnson County High School Robotics Team also had an excellent showing at the Chattanooga competition.  The teams were awarded the sportsmanship award, which is voted on by all participating teams.  This team also finished the competition in second place with their alliances. The team coaches, Kasi Dishman and Dave Quave, look forward to the teams’ performances in the competitions ahead.
The JOCO ROBOS would like the community to support the VEX State Qualifying Tournament by attending this exciting and free competition on Saturday, February 18, 2017 at Johnson County Middle School.  Approximately 20 robotics teams will come together for a non-stop, action-packed day of competition where they will battle against each other with robots created from VEX Engineering Design Robots. Participants will square off in the game VEX Robotics Competition Starstruck, which is played by scoring stars and cubes in scoring zones and by hanging robots in a designated hanging bar. VEX Robotics Competition Starstruck was developed by VEX Robotics, Inc. and the Robotics Education and Competition Foundation, leaders in educational and competitive robotics.
The JOCO ROBOS VEX Robotics Competition is one in a series of tournaments supported by the Robotics Education and Competition Foundation and various national, regional and local sponsors.  The competition season culminates each spring, with the top performing teams from local and state VEX Robotics Teams compete against each other at the VEX Robotics World Championship. At the VEX Robotics World Championship, these exemplary teams will have the opportunity to challenge their top-ranked peers from over 30 countries around the world, including Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, India, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain, United Kingdom and the United States of America.
Please come out and support the robotics teams from 10:00 am – 5:30 pm on Saturday, February 18, 2017!  The event is free and concessions will be sold.
