'Trojanauts' Take on All Robots at Competition

The Trojanauts work with their robot at the Oxford competition.

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by the Pottstown School District.

Pottstown High School students Javon Dill, Justin Johnson, Manuel Paez, Chris Stone and Imir Toney are members of the PHS Trojanotics Robotics Club. 

Over the weekend of Jan. 7, the Trojanauts, as they're called, traveled to Oxford High School to do
battle with 31 other schools from Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, and Delaware in the first robotics competition of the year. 

The club was guided by their advisors, math teachers Robert Decker and Eilee Basham. 

The team battled thru five rounds of the"Velocity Vortex" challenge which required the students to design, build, program, and operate their robot to achieve a variety of actions. 

The students had opportunity to learn valuable lessons that will aid them in their next event on Feb. 11 at Emmaus High School. 

Activities like Robotics is a way to make learning fun and meaningful for students, and another reason to say Proud to be from Pottstown.
