VEX Robotics Competition Team
Students in 4th and 5th grade can apply each August to join Tritt Elementary's VEX IQ Robotics Competition Team for the current school-year. Mandatory practices are every Wednesday and Friday from 7:15-7:45 where we will design, build and program VEX IQ robots to compete in that year's challenge (see the 2019/20 challenge in the video below). Students (and parents) should expect to travel to Cumming, GA and Auburn, AL to compete 2-3 times in the evenings throughout the Fall and Winter. The State Championship is each February where eight GA teams can earn a spot to Nationals in Louisville, KY that April. Cost is $100 per student which includes equipment, t-shirt, and registration fees to non-playoff tournaments. Spaces are limited.
The following students have been selected to the 2019/20 team:
4th Graders: Cayla Wise, Hailey Mallory, Julianna Crowell, Mira Ballantyne, Riley Wilhoite, Alex Moody, Charles Weiner, Fonti Fontanillas, Jack Mitchell, Jay Carlton, Kaden Brown, Nicholas Andrews and Noah Needle
5th Graders: Caleigh Bacon, Kate Bezbatchenko, Yuri Sung, Bryce Gilbert, Enzo Kukreja, Ethan Greenberg, Everett Soller, Jack Allgood, Johnny Howell, Raghav Sundar and Tristan Batherosse
