From Coach Brian Grigsby:
Jefferson-Craig’s Riverbotics teams were in action again over the weekend at South Ripley Elementary School. The A and B teams both performed very well coming away with the A team getting 1st and the B team getting 2nd overall. The teams earned four more trophies; Alliance Challenge, Skill Drive, STEM project, and the Excellence award.
Both teams represented our school very well. They received a number of accolades about their positive attitudes, good behavior, and willingness to help others. Our small school is really making a name for themselves in the world of robotics.
To put everything into perspective I wanted to run down some statistics for you:
-In the state of Indiana there are 805 schools that have robotics. Our B team is ranked 22, top 3%.Our A team is ranked 5 in state, top 1%
-In the United States there are 3,942 schools that have robotics: B team rank 156, top 4%. A team is ranked 49, Top 2%.
-In the World there are 4,602 robotics teams: B team ranks 241, top 5% of the World!. A team ranks 93, top 2% of the World!
We have a great thing going at Jeff-Craig. Thanks for all the support you have given us!
