ROBOTICS........

A very special congratulation goes out to the Monroe Engineering and Design Robotics Team!!! They competed against 26 of the best robotics teams at the Ventura County Regional competition and came out as the tournament champions with FIRST PLACE!! This qualifies them for the state championship in the spring. If this isn't enough, they also broke the WORLD RECORD for the most points in one match scoring 308 points. This is quite an accomplishment because there are over 10,000 teams in more than 33 countries. Then they broke their own world record AGAIN scoring 315 points later in the competition!

We are very PROUD of our Monroe Engineering and Design Robotics Team - good luck at Granada Hills Charter High School this weekend!
