Now in its eleventh year, excitement is ramping up for the State Robotics Championship to be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this coming Saturday at Crawfordsville High School. Read all about it by flipping to Page A3 in today’s edition of The Paper.
“There are 32 teams from Indiana and three from Kentucky ready to battle it out for five coveted spots that will advance to the Super-Regional competition in Iowa,” Darren Wilcoxson, Robotics Director at CHS tells us. “Winners will, then, move on to the World Championships to be held in Detroit, Mich. One of our teams advanced to the World Championships last year and team members are working hard to make that happen again.”
Speaking of team members, Emily Bost and Oscar Jacome Huesca, both freshmen at CHS, spent some time with The Paper this week. While their robot doesn’t have a name, they did name their team “C’villized Botman,” an homage to their ties to Crawfordsville. Both Bost and Huesca are determined to continue their robotics journey throughout high school and to pursue engineering degrees in college.
Admission to the State Robotics Championship is free and open to the public at Crawfordsville High School located on State Road 47 South in Crawfordsville. 
Question of the Week:

Considering that an AR-15-type semi-automatic weapon has been used in six of the 10 most deadly mass shootings in the U.S. in the last decade, should those types of weapons be banned?
