Robotics: Team Builds Success on Collaboration, Hard Work, and Complex Coding

Some high schoolers enjoy sports. Some enjoy creative pastimes like sketching, writing, or photography. Others are passionate about designing and building robots that can solve world problems. The students of Eagle River High School’s (ERHS) robotics program fall into the latter category, and they love what they do. Since the program’s start in 2011, ERHS’s robotics teams have won 11 tournaments, 20 team awards, and qualified for the Worlds Championships multiple times in Tech Challenge. In 2013, a team from ERHS won the Inspire Team Award, an award recognizing a team exemplifying the program’s values.
