TMJ4.com: Homestead High School’s robotics team ranks among the best in the world.
In February, they were even ranked number one overall for a week. They’ve since dropped to a measly 8th out of 6,000 teams but have their eyes on the top spot with two more competitions coming up.
An impressive feat by kids who mostly can’t drive yet but drive robots with the best of them.
“It’s a lot of fun,” Kaitlyn Donley, a junior on the Kraken Pinion Robotics team said. “I love competing with other teams. It gives me real-world experience and prepares me for what I want to be when I grow up which is an engineer.”
