CARROLL COUNTY COLLEGE AND CAREER ACADEMY STUDENTS ARE AMONG TOP HONORS AT THE GEORGIA STATE VEX ROBOTICS COMPETITION (Carrollton, GA – March 3, 2016)​

Carroll County College and Career Academy’s robot­bearing students, VEX Robotics Team 3921B, secured second Place and Team 3921C was a quarterfinalist at the Georgia State VRC Competition at Ola High School in McDonough this past weekend. All three of CCA’s teams qualified to compete among 230 Georgia teams statewide. The action­packed day required middle and high school students to execute the VEX Robotics Competition game Nothing But Net, which is played by scoring colored balls in high and low goals, as well as by elevating the robot in a designated climbing zone. As tournament finalists, the teams qualified for the chance to compete at VEX Worlds in April against top teams from over 30 countries worldwide. Carroll County College and Career Academy’s VEX team is comprised of over 25 high school and middle school students from Bowdon, Central, Temple and Villa Rica. To prepare for the competition, the group worked together, using VEX EDR, to design and build a robot that could quickly and efficiently solve specific obstacles and challenges that come with playing the game Nothing but Net. The Carroll County College and Career Academy team has three robot teams designated 3921A, 3921B and 3921C. To qualify for state, competition teams must win a competition during the regular season or achieve high judge ratings.
