LV RoboBears take first in robotics
La Vernia RoboBears (l-r) Braedon Wegehaupt, Gavin Bigler, and Brett Cheverton proudly hold their awards after taking first place at the Engineering Technology Challenge on April 5 at UTSA.
The La Vernia RoboBears Team competed at the Engineering Technology Challenge at UTSA on April 5.
Team members Braedon Wegehaupt, Gavin Bigler, and Brett Cheverton designed and programmed a strong robot to joust against other robotic competitors sumo-style and won first place out of 22 teams in a double-elimination tournament.
Each member of the winning team received a plaque, certificate, T-shirt, and a $1,000 UTSA scholarship. The event was sponsored by the Texas Society of Professional Engineers.
This was the team’s first time to compete and didn’t expect the tournament to be simultaneously nerve-wracking and exhilarating!
Congratulations, Braedon, Gavin, and Brett! Awesome job!
