Two more Brewbaker Technology Magnet High teams have qualified for the VEX Robotics state championship, and the school now has 12 of the 55 teams that have qualified statewide. It also is the first school in the state to have three qualifying all-girls teams.

 

BrewTech robotics students won their latest awards at the River Region – II VEX Tournament at Montgomery Catholic. The freshman girls team of Emma Rountree, Madison Morgan and Parker Schell won the Tournament Champion Award, although only one of the girls was able to attend the tournament. The team of Jason Wang, Rashad Pounds, Carlos Ricardo and Nakari Harris won the Skills Award.

 

In addition, there were several current and former BrewTech students involved in the operation of the tournament. Two current students, Austin Thomas and Brett Tolerson, and two former students, Alex Knapp and Landon Thompson, were referees at the event. BrewTech senior Collin Lawlor ran the hardware and software for the event.

 

The BrewTech robotics teams are led by engineering instructor Steve Ballard. The state VEX Robotics championship will be March 2 at Auburn High.
