BEST Robotics Regional Champions

The CVCA Royal Technic Robotics team competed in the BEST Robotics Regional Championships at Grove City College this weekend. The team competed in all aspects of the competition including marketing, team exhibit, spirit and sportsmanship, engineering notebook, and the robot competition. The students have been preparing for the competition by learning about plastic prevention in our oceans and lakes. The team’s robot finished 4th in the robot competition and was awarded the Most Robust Robot Award and the Founders Award for creativity of design. The team was awarded the Simulink Award, which includes a cash award of $1,000.00, for the best programming video, created by Tyler Stoltz. The Team Exhibit led by presenters Ethan Smith and Kate Oyster received 2nd place. And the team won 1st place for Spirit and Sportsmanship. CVCA Royal Technic Robotics received the highest award given to a robotics team which is the BEST Award, making the team regional champions!

Jterm Change for 2019-2020 School Year

For the 2019-2020 school year, our traditional January Jterm offerings will shift to March for a five-day Mterm. The exploratory and experiential learning opportunity will take place immediately prior to Spring Break. As we implement this change next year, we are considering the possibility of alternating Mterm and Jterm every other year, allowing more students to fully participate in the experiences offered. Historically, some students have been prevented from participating fully in Jterm options due to winter athletic commitments. We also believe that the March timing will open new learning opportunities that are not feasible in January due to weather and other factors.
