The Grand View School RoboChargers competed at their second robotics tournament on Jan. 30 at Keys Elementary School.
The teams experienced success, with one team ranking second in its division and almost qualifying to compete in the final rounds. The first-year teams worked successfully under pressure through the engineering process.
The Cherokee Nation Foundation donated two VEX IQ sets, which will enable Grand View to have a younger team of fifth- and sixth-graders. Cherokee Data Solutions donated a $250 scholarship for parts to the RoboChargers. This will help the team buy new parts when the game for 2016-2017 is revealed in April.
The team has also received support and instruction from Sequoyah High School, Northeastern State University, Tahlequah Public Schools, and others.
