TSA States: Uncharted Territory

The CHHS Technology Student Association attended the NCTSA Conference in Greensboro April 22-24. 

 
A major milestone was the debut of our VEX Robotics team, led by Eric Johns. The robot was a new venture executed by Eric along with Josh Vinson, Joshua Kaufman, Juan Echeverry, and Thomas Bland. Our robot, "Hook", struggled at first, but won its last game! For our first year in this venture, it was truly amazing! We hope to grow this program and come back even stronger next year.
 
Many of our students faced uncharted territory, new challenges, and things that didn't quite go as planned. All in all, they handled it with class. After all, smooth seas never make for a skilled sailor! (Or Pirate!)
 
Many of our students were top twelve finalists. For most of these events, this is our first time making the finalist list!
