Robotics Heating Up
On Saturday, December 7th, four of our Beckman Robotics teams competed in the TUSD VEX Robotics tournament (the other 2 volunteered to help with the event). 36 teams participated in the event and after the qualification rounds, three of the beckman teams ended up in the top six, with 2496X going undefeated. As the #1 seed, the X team ended up winning the tournament while the N team won the overall excellence award. This means all 6 of our teams are now qualified for state! Along with that, our J team were Skills Champions and reclaim the #1 ranking in California.
