70 students, teachers and parents from Alpine visited the 15th International Robot Olympiad in Denver today. They were accompanied by Josh Lemon and Alex Downing, STEM coordinators from Rocky Mountain Elementary and Timberline K-8.
Westview had one Robotics team of five students last year. This year they have five teams of 30 students that are competing in local VEX competitions. At the event at Trail Ridge on December 7th, the program won its first award, "Best Sportsmanship." The team consisting of 7th and 8th graders Luke Downey, Keoni San Miguel, Jessica Brause, Thomas Johann, and Renee Comeau, helped their alliance teams on two separate matches by giving up their opportunity to score points and helping their alliance robot after it tipped over.
