The Manchester Township Middle School students participated in the Bulldozer Event.  Each team designed and built an autonomous Lego Mindstorm robot at school and brought it to the competition in a ready to run configuration. They also prepared a three minute presentation on their project.

The high school found out about the event with a little over a week's notice and did their best to prepare (and it paid off!) Maxwell Anderson, Kaye Ysabel Huet, and Andrew Jiang, did come in first place in the presentation of The Prometheus Robot. The team presentation was led by Kaye Ysabel Huet.

"The best part about the day was the way our students stood out as such positive individuals" says Patricia White, Manchester High School Teacher. "Before we had to leave to go home, our groups sat down on the floor at one of the courses and asked the (Manchester) middle school students to join in on an all out competition between multiple robots. It was so neat to see that all the students who were not in the ring with their robots watching our students."

Congratulations to all of the students and their teachers on their hard work and recognitions!
