A robotics team from the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District won a national award for robotics design.
The Summit Squared BattleBOTS team from Summit Technology Academy was one of just eight recipients nationwide to receive a $1,000 grant for its robotics design. Led by Coach Eric Walters, the team includes Zoey Sears and Piper Stropes from Summit Technology Academy and Lee’s Summit High School, and Jared Townsley and Kayshawn Whitworth from Summit Technology Academy.
The National Tooling and Machining Association, which runs the National Robotics League program, partnered with Mastercam, a software company, for the NRL Mastercam Design Challenge. Engineers judged submissions and chose Summit Squared BattleBOTS for the team’s innovation and creativity.
