Successful Mission.

54 Arp Junior High's robotics students had the opportunity to put their skills to the test last week at the Region 7 robotics challenge competition in Kilgore.

And they passed that test with flying colors.

The Tiger team "Nifty Shifty Bits" comprised of eighth grader Brooke Abbott, eighth grader Journey Hawkins, and seventh grader Hailey Charles came away with the third place trophy out of 110 teams.

Another one of our teams, "The 4 big guys" finished in 11th place.  Seventh-graders Cale Bedard, David Black, Alex Nguyen, and J.T. Benefield were the members of that group.

The participants were given 45 minutes to program their respective robots, and to practice.  Then they would each have 90 seconds to show their stuff in front of the judges.

Below are all the Arp students that competed under the guidance and direction of robotics teachers Brittany Anderson, and Arethra Garrett.
