Eagles Robotics Champions
Press Release (courtesy of Mr. Sergio Franco)
The JGHS Robotics team — juniors Diego Contreras, Sammy Hamouda, and Benjamin Sanchez — won their fourth consecutive district robotics championship on Thursday, February 24, 2022. They defeated eight other robotics teams from NHS and LMHS in a competition that combined all of the previous skills and tasks (autonomous, search and rescue, and battle).
They overcame many challenges to achieve their victory: a less than optimal competition field, cortex malfunctions, motors not working, wiring issues, code not parsing, removing a part of the robot that completely stopped working mid-competition, and all while helping other teams fix their robot and code.
The students are extremely dedicated and passionate. Their success is proportional to the huge amounts of time they invested in preparing for the competitions; they met before school, during break, during lunch, after school, and on late starts.
They are proud of representing our wonderful learning community. Please let them know you are proud of them as well!
