Robotics Team Named as 2nd Place Grand Champion in Regional Circuit

The Caddo Magnet Robotics Team finished this year’s Regional Autonomous Robotics Circuit with their third and final competition of the year.  The Regional Autonomous Robotics Circuit (RARC) is a series of three competitions for students in grades 3-12. The competitions build upon one another and allow students to showcase their STEM skills by competing against other students in their division (elementary school, middle school, and high school) in a series of STEM challenges. The hands-on challenges serve a dual purpose: introduce STEM concepts and their many applications and reinforce STEM fundamentals learned in the classroom. The third competition was held on Saturday, April 30, 2016.

Team 2 placed 3rd in this competition and the entire team amassed enough points to be declared the 2nd Place Grand Champion for the year!
