DC West robotics teams are taking their talents to the world stage next month to compete in the Vex Robotics World Championship.

There’s a lot going on inside the robotics room at DC West. The teams are practicing with one goal in mind: giving it their all.

Sophomore Avery Maline said being on the robotics teams takes a lot of work. “I don’t know how many hours I would say we spend on it, but it’s working forever,” Maline said.

Maline will be competing at the high school level with her team, which includes Darby Giles, Brook Cooke, Evan Clauson, Paxton Paulson and Ben Manrique.

The teams spent their spring break building their bots, programming and doing test runs.

The preparation is being made so they can travel and compete on a global stage.

At the Vex Robotics World Championship during the competition, teams are given challenges and will complete them as best as they can. The team that racks up the most points advances in the competition.

“It’s so busy and it’s a lot of adrenaline because you’re, you’re constantly having to go to matches, and then you’re constantly having to watch people’s matches and your score,” Maline said.
