Springfield High School Robotics Club Earn Spot At State Championship

SPRINGFIELD TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – The Springfield High School Robotics, Team Rooster advanced to the TN State Championship semifinalist round Saturday night, March 1, securing a spot to the VEX World Championship in April.  Teams Rooster and Jaws fought hard throughout the qualification matches and ranked 13th and 14th out of 64 teams from across the state.  This is a tremendous improvement over their results at state last year and we are proud of their hard work and accomplishments!

As one of 17 teams from TN to attend Worlds, Team Rooster will represent Springfield High and Robertson County Schools in Dallas, TX, April 25-27, and at the JROTC National Championship on April 28-30, also in Dallas, TX.

Joltin’ Jackets JAWS (84373A) and Joltin’ Jackets Rooster (2707X) competed at a high level and represented Robertson County and Springfield High School very well. The Jaws team finished 8th and the Rooster team finished 3rd. For their 3rd-place finish, the Rooster team earned a bid to Vex Worlds. This is an accomplishment for the VEX VRC high school robotics programs that has never been done in Robertson County.

VEX Worlds is an annual robotics competition organized by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation (REC Foundation). It brings together thousands of students from around the world to compete in various robotics challenges using the VEX Robotics Design System. The competition features multiple divisions, including VEX IQ for elementary and middle school students, and VEX EDR (VEX Robotics Competition) for high school students. Participants design, build, and program robots to complete specific tasks or objectives within a set game or challenge. VEX Worlds offers students the opportunity to showcase their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) skills, collaborate with peers, and compete at the highest levels of robotics competition.
