Palmyra High School’s Prototype Panthers Robotics Club competed in this year’s Fall Harvest First Tech Challenge competition at Cherokees High School on Saturday November 17th. The team composed primarily of 8th, 9th and 10th graders (most of whom are first year members) performed admirably among a field of 30 mostly seasoned teams. The team learned a great deal and met a number of fantastic students from schools in the area. As of now, they are redesigning their robot for the next completion in January in hopes of being one of the top teams for the meet.

Please see Episode 5 of the Panther Press!
