Like everything else this year, the Robobroncs faced many challenges including canceled competitions and virtual events but they persevered and ended the year with several wins as well as collecting much needed clothing and supplies for families in need on the Wind River Reservation.
Season highlights for FIRST Robotics Challenge included Stella Vickland-Davis being named the Dean's List Award Finalist and the JH RoboBroncs being selected as one of the Chairman's Award winners for the region, the top prize in FIRST Robotics. Stella and the team will continue on and compete for the awards virtually at FIRST Championships this June.The younger students in FIRST Tech Challenge also brought home 2 first place trophies, as well as multiple 2nd and 3rd places. The 6th Graders had 2 teams compete in WY state Champs, and every third grader in the district is completing FIRST Lego League projects in their classes. Over 250 students in the Teton County School District are participating this year!
Gary Duquette stated “This year presented a variety of challenges but our team had many successes and learned a lot. The work they invested this year will benefit the team going forward. They are already hard at work preparing for an off-season in Pocatello this September.”
The Robobroncs are closing out their donation for Wind River Reservation this year with one last clothing drive. Donations of clean clothing for children ages 6-12 contained in plastic bags may be dropped off at the JHHS front office by June 3rd. Questions about the drive may be sent to email@example.com
