WAIS takes 2nd in Texas Region for Botball Robotics Competition

Westchester Academy for International Studies (WAIS) earns Texas Regional First Place Seeding, Third Place in Autonomous Robotics Competition, and Second Place Overall which includes competition, presentation, and documentation accumulative scores at Botball Texas Regional Tournament on March 22. 

Team captions are Preston Godinich and Kaivon Dixon. Members are Malcolm Eastman, Adam Fazal, Jonatan Rodriguez, Diego Velazquez, Ozzie Prior and Christwide Oscar. Faculty coaches are Cheryl Wegscheid and Shaun Wegscheid. Since Botball robots are always autonomous the team developed strategies using artificial intelligence with embedded systems. Teams learn to program their robots in using C and C++.

FYI- We lost to teams that had several years’ experience with Botball, as well as having much larger teams if 15 -20 students. Not bad for our first adventure into purely autonomous robots with real coding required!
