The CHS robotics team recently placed fourth at their first competition held at the TSTC campus in Sweetwater.

Kolton Frazier, David Lammons, Harrison Sides, Jacob Stooksberry, Elian Olvera are all members of the team.

The students have already built the robot and each of the team members serves as an operator, engineer or  environmental specialist during each match of the competition.

The theme this year is cleaning the world’s oceans. The robot has to travel on a simulated ocean current and pick various types of trash out of the water while protecting the various types of aquatic wildlife that lives beneath and above the waves.

The team is in the process of revising their robot to correct any issues they had in the first competition for upcoming robotics contests in November and January.

“I believe we did pretty well,” Stooksberry said. “Our robot’s claw broke around the sixth round and we couldn’t use it, so that’s our number one problem right now and  also trying to make the robot drive with a belt.”
