Students build robot for competition

“There are many different angles to this project,” LeCroy said. “There is not only the engineering and physics side to things, but you also have a writing side and many other angles that make the whole project complete.”

Cain Castleberry, 17, from Thorsby High School is excited about the competition and hopes to bring home a trophy.

“It would be nice to get a nice sized trophy to bring back with us from competing on Saturday,” Castleberry said.

Katelyn Ramsey, 16, attends Isabella High School and will be part of the group giving an oral presentation during the competition.

“I am kind of nervous I have to talk in front of everyone,” Ramsey said.

LeCroy said the students are looking forward to participating in the competition that has become the second largest educational robotics program in the country.
