First Ever Underwater Robotics Team

Our first ever Alleghany County Schools underwater robotics team placed 1st in the navigator class at the Appalachian Highlands MATE underwater robotics competition in Kingsport Tennessee this past weekend. They also received the missions award that recognized the team that completed the most missions. In addition, an essay and video were created that documented the community outreach and progress of the team. The essay and video received the 'Professors Award" that earned the team a $500.00 sustainability grant from the Eastman Chemical Corporation. The team consists of six members, three from Glade Creek and three from Sparta School.
