The VEX Robotics World Championship is now complete, and Jenison had amazing success! These kids are amazing! Our teams competed with teams from Mexico, China, Australia, South Korea, Bahrain, just to name a few of the 56 countries represented.
"Game Over" from the Junior High competed in the Middle School division of the competition. With 160 total teams they were separated into two equal divisions. With 80 of the best teams from around the world in their division, "Game Over" won their division's Create Award for a robot design that incorporates a creative engineering solution to the design challenges of this season’s game.

You would have been impressed with our Spanish immersion students!! Before matches our students would collaborate and strategize with Spanish speaking teams all in Spanish! It was very neat to see.
Thank you all for your support of these kids and this program, and them attending the robotics World Championship!
