Collinwood Robotics Duo Represents at Cone Zone Challenge
Congratulations, Collinwood robotics team of Victor Mallory and De’Vaughn Killingsworth!
Congratulations to the Collinwood Teaching Professions’ robotics team of Victor Mallory and De’Vaughn Killingsworth who represented their high school in the Cone Zone Challenge held at the Great Lakes Science Center on Saturday, May, 19, 2012. The event, sponsored by Cuyahoga Community College, was a culminating experience for students enrolled in the Youth Technology Academy. Competitors were required to build and program a robot capable of grasping a billiard ball, then depositing it in a cone-shaped receptacle.
The competition consisted of two rounds. Upon completion of the first round, Victor and De’Vaughn found themselves in fourth place, a position good enough to advance them to the semi-finals. Victor and De’Vaughn gave a valiant effort in the semi-final round, but their robot was defeated in three matches. Although they did not bring back the trophy, De’Vaughn and Victor made Collinwood proud. Congratulations, again, on a job well done.
