Congratulations to the Fannin County High School (FCHS) VEX Robotics Teams on their recent competition at Gilmer County High School (January 11th). Students from the Engineering program at FCHS designed, built, and competed against other teams from around the State of Georgia in the VEX Robotics Tower Takeover game.
Isaiah Cargle is a senior who has been competing in VEX for four years.
Lexi McGill and Samantha Rosas represent the first all female robotics team at FCHS, and they recently won a $1,000 Girl-Powered Grant through Robot Events. This was their first competition with their new robot!
Bryce Ware and James Kyle competed in VEX and Lego Robotics at the middle school, and this is their first year at the high school level.
These students also have the opportunity to compete at the Technology Student Association (TSA) State Conference in Athens, GA in March.
“I am very proud of these students for competing in such a challenging event. All three teams placed in the top 25, and they have started a strong foundation for the robotics program at FCHS for the future.” Bubba Gibbs, Engineering Teacher and Technology Student Association Advisor.
