Intermediate School News: December 4 – 8, 2017

Robotics Team

On Saturday, the Clarksville Academy Robotics club competed in their first ever First Lego League (FLL) competition at Austin Peay State University.   Both teams, the Cyber Cougars and the 2D Robots, have worked extremely hard this school year working on their Hydrodynamics Project and Core Values presentations as well as learning how to build and program the robot to accomplish various missions.  We are extremely proud of how both teams represented CA during this competition.  The Team of 2D Robots were awarded 1st place for their presentation on the Core Values.  This combined with their ability to complete various missions during the Robot rounds has qualified the 2D Robots team to compete in the West TN FLL Championship Competition in Memphis TN on Jan 21st.  If you see any of these outstanding students congratulate them on their accomplishments.
