Drones for Good!

March 18, 2019
By Julie Strickland

Springmont's Robotics Team, the Springbots, did an amazing job at the G3 Drones for Good competition held at Grady High School on Saturday. Their drone flew really well, scoring 17 points, and the students’ creative problem-solving project, a hypothetical fleet of drones that could help lead people to food, shelter and medical care after a natural disaster, won 1st prize!  The judges were so impressed they encouraged our students to start a business. 

Final rankings will be released later this week, but overall we think the team placed 7th out of 28 teams. Congrats to team members Ian, Timothy, Mason and Siddhu!  They are already looking forward to next year's competition.
