St. Fred runner-up at State Robotics Competition
Three area high schools competed in the Louisiana VEX Robotics state competition recently at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
Carroll High School, Madison High School and St. Frederick High School were three of the 17 teams from throughout the state that qualified in regional competitions.
Students on the high school teams built robots that performed on their own and they manned robots that competed against other team robots by scoring points for different tasks.
“We are proud of the accomplishment of the St. Frederick Robotics team who made it to the finals to earn the Louisiana state runner-up position. Mr. Trombatore has done an excellent job as the faculty sponsor of the robotics team,” stated Guy Farber, St. Frederick Principal.
Trombatore teaches chemistry, physics and pre-engineering at St. Frederick High School.
