The Rat Rod Robotics team from David Crockett High School spent spring break at a competition in South Carolina.

From STAFF REPORTS

Rat Rod Robotics Team participated in their last event of the season, Smoky Mountain Regional Competition in Knoxville, from March 21 to March 24. The team is very proud to have been one of the safest teams at the competition. The team’s safety captain, Corbin Cowden, won Star of the Day, an award given each day at competition to two participants who have made a notable contribution to promoting the culture of safety. Cowden also led his team to win the Underwriters Laboratories Pit Safety Award. This award is given to the team that exemplifies safety at all times in their pit (the area in which the team works on and stores their robot during competition). The team is pleased with how they have done this season and are greatly looking forward to next season. Photo at left, Corbin Cowden, helped set the team (above photo) on a winning track.
