MO Peeps Are Going to Worlds!

The MO' Peeps are the current VEX Robotics Middle School State Champions! The team is a collection of Carman-Ainsworth students who have been working together since September to build, program and compete with VEX Robots. The two teams, MO' Peeps and Even MO' Peeps became State Champs on February 19, 2017 at Michigan State University at the VRC Middle School State Championship in East Lansing. They are currently ranked 9th in the world among st 8,184 high school and middle school teams.

This state championship has qualified them to compete the World Competition in Louisville, Kentucky on April 19th, 2017. They are very excited and are working hard improving their robots in order to do their absolute best in Louisville.

They have been able to earn two State Championship titles, a State Skills Champion title and 9 Tournament Champion titles. They have also earned awards in Excellence, Design, Robot Skills and Think.

So please wish the following students luck as they make their way to Worlds: Kya, Caleb, Jack, Max, Micah, Adrien, Lydia, Alex, Hunter, Ainsley, Parker and Sonny. Good luck to our coaches, Leanne Welch, Dylan Elmer and Ronnie Sherrer, as well.
