The Redbank Valley High School Robotics Team  traveled to Fargo, North Dakota, to compete in the Regional B.E.S.T. Robotics Competition the first week of December.  The team finished in 16th place overall with the robot they used at the HUB Competition at Penn State DuBois.

Along the 17 hour drive,  the team made various stops at venues to expand their cultural experience.  Stops included were a cheese plant in Wisconsin, the Mall of America in Minnesota, the American Picker’s store in Iowa, and a drive through Chicago to see the second tallest building in the United States.

Nine students spanning grades 7-12 participated:  Logan Markle, Eli Carlson, Cooper Sheffer, Peyton Kirkpatrick, Tyler Ortz, Trenten Keighley, Matthew Green, Lauren Smith and LeighAnn Hetrick.   Congratulations, RV Robotics Team!
