Morgan Mueller ‘18 & Macy Manchester ‘18 – The Romeo High School Robotics Team has had a successful year, leading them to compete in the Worlds Competition in St. Louis, Missouri. The team competed against several other countries, including high school teams from Canada and The Netherlands.
Samuel Hein, a senior at RHS, and 4th year Robotics team member tells us that Robotics has given him the opportunity to learn so many new things about the world of engineering and stem.
“My role on the team is the student lead of our team’s electrical subgroup (we do all of the electrical and wiring of our robot),” Hein ‘17 said.
Our RHS Byting Bulldogs team started out in District Competitions in March and April, then moving onto States, and after accumulating enough points, moved onto the World competition in St. Louis.
Michael Savage, a teacher at the RETC, is also known for being the coach of our Robotics team. This is his second year teaching and coaching in the district. However, he has prior experiences with both teaching and coaching in another district.
“The team did very well to make it to the elimination tournaments and to make it to accumulate enough points to qualify for both states and worlds. There are somewhere around 4,000 teams and we were ranked within the top 150 in the world competition, which is pretty respectable,” Savage said.
Congratulations to our Byting Bulldogs on this years accomplishments. Making it to States and onto the World Competition is something to be proud of and deserves more recognition than given.
