BMS Students compete in robotics competition

May 15, 2019

From April 28-30, the Blackwell Middle School VEX IQ team competed at the VEX Worlds competition in Louisville, KY. This competition was by invitation only. The team placed 36th overall in the “Robotics Skills Challenge” out of 315 teams. The team also competed in the “Teamwork Challenge” with teams from the United Kingdom, South Korea, Columbia, Mexico, and the United States. 

“This experience is something that is invaluable to our students. The competition that they seen is incomparable to what they seen in Oklahoma. We walked out the best in Oklahoma. We are now prepared for TSA Nationals,” said Kari Widener, the program's adviser.

Attending the competition were Axel Paige, Logan Beeler, and Christian Widener. 

The program would like to thank the Beatty Trust, the Southern Star Natural Gas Company, and Blackwell Public Schools for their support.
