Early this year, the Mainland Robotics Division hosted, and competed in, the first VEX Robotics Competition in Volusia County. The event was attended by schools from Orlando, Leesburg, Apopka, Marianna, New Smyrna Beach, and Miami. Teams 4029A and 5956C from Leesburg and Timber Creek respectively were the tournament champions which qualified them for the State Competition. Congratulations to all of the teams for their innovative student designs, sportsmanship, and engineering aptitude.
Next up for the Mainland Robotics Team, code name “Twisted Axel” is the Annual Technology Student Association (TSA) conference in Orlando March 1-4. At that event Mainland will field two teams and compete against other high schools from all over the state in head to head competition.
