St. Agnes Robotics Team Participates In Jamboree

The St. Agnes robotics team participated in its first Clavius Robotics Jamboree on February 2 at St. Pius High School. The nine students prepared for the jamboree over a period of several months by building and programming their robots to achieve and master several challenges. Each school that participated in the jamboree will receive a color-level banner depending on the total number of accumulated team points.  Team members included eighth-grader Joseph Govero; seventh-graders Noah Bauman, Preston Lurk, Dominic Griffard, Garrett Shortt, and Truman Tucker; and sixth-graders Patrick Schilly, Carter Grass and Madelyn  Griffard.

With the help of St. Louis University’s program, Pitts made it possible for St. Agnes School and other Catholic schools to attain grants and funding for the Lego robot kits, as well as team shirts. Not shown in the photo: Erin O’Driscoll, principal at St. Agnes and head robotics coach, and Cindy Fallert, St. Agnes science teacher and assistant robotics coach.
