Pioneer Robotics
Following their State Championship, the Pioneer Robotics Team traveled to Detroit, Michigan last week where they competed for the title of World Champion. Out of over 6,000 teams from 71 countries around the world, only 320 teams qualified to compete in the world championship competition.

The team ultimately ranked 20th overall in the world and their robot secured 1st place in autonomous programming. This means the team designed, built and programmed the best robot, which completed this year's tasks while running without human input. The Pioneer's robot performed flawlessly over the course of 9 qualifying rounds. Not bad for only the second year of the Robotics Program...go Pioneers!
