Lake Orion’s Team 302 finished among the top ten schools at the Oakland County Competitive Robotics Association championship in November. Students designed and built a robot to participate in this year’s competitive game called “8 Ball”. Their work began in September, as they had a number of design challenges to overcome when building the robot to compete. At the county championship, Team 302 won two awards – Strategic Design and Simple Solution.
