Robotics Team Wins State Competition

Picture of the Robotics Team Members

 The  Mt. SAC Robotics Team won the state Vex Robotics Championship recently at Cal State Northridge. Despite 12 grueling matches, one of the robotics catching fire, and numerous other challenges, the team prevailed with only one match loss.

Team Captain Vincent Vendiola was recognized with the Individual Excellence Award at the event for not only his invaluable team contributions, but also for helping other teams that experienced challenges with their robots. The 12-member team is now preparing for the World Championships April 18-20 against 50 international competitors, representing 12 countries.

Congratulations to the team members as well as their faculty coach, Professor Martin Mason. (Posted 4-12-13)
