In early December, Enumclaw High School’s Team 4213, the Techno-Bots, qualified for the Washington state robotics championships.

In early December, Enumclaw High School’s Team 4213, the Techno-Bots, qualified for the Washington state robotics championships.

The team also won the “Think” award, a judges’ award based on the quality of the team’s documentation relating to the engineering process of the robot.

Adviser Corey Cassell said senior Danielle Terrell did a fantastic job on the engineering book, which is a crucial part of the competition as judges score teams heavily on the use of engineering principles on their projects.

Terrell also coached the team during competition. Sebastian Churchel skillfully piloted the robot and mechanics Michael Pederson and Sam Phelps helped keep the robot on the field by fixing any mechanical issues. Kayla Terrill provided support to the administration of the team duties and the mechanics.

Cassell noted the robot had some technical difficulties throughout the day, but in the end they performed well enough to qualify for the state contest, which is scheduled for Jan. 14 and 15.

Enumclaw High Team 5447, RoboBees, and Team 5446, Mecha-Militia, are hoping to earn a spot at state in the third and final qualifier Saturday at Henry Jackson High School in Mill Creek. Those results were not available at press time.

“We are confident that the teams will be able to work out the challenges and be ready for a good performance on the 17th,” Cassell said.
