Tuesday, May 14, 2013
For the third year in a row, the Camas-Washougal Robotics Team has competed at the world championships.
FIRST Robotics Team 2471, or "Team Mean Machine," as it's known, has had a successful season, winning first place alliance honors at both Portland and Spokane FIRST Robotics competitions during March and April.
The team also brought home awards for team imagery, safety and quality. Adding to that success, team members recently returned from the FIRST Robotics (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) World Championships in St. Louis, Mo. Students from Camas, Washougal and Hokinson high schools participate on the team.
"Robotics provides a unique environment to learn while working with experienced mentors from industry," said Debbie Lindy, team publicity chairwoman.
