Eisenhower robotics team earns award at UTSA Gear competition

Kids in space

On the weekend of April 5 the Eisenhower Middle School Generals Robotic's team, comprised of Joseph Garza-De la Pena, Malcolm Ralston and Nathaniel Bielawski, competed in the spring UTSA GEAR competition. Although competition was tough, they managed to earn two great recognitions.

The team finished in second place among all middle school competitors, but even more impressive, the team earned the first place Young Engineer's Award. This award is presented to the team that best exemplifies the goals of the GEAR competition by developing a well balanced team that uses the engineering process to solve problems.

Criteria used to judge for this award includes; the team's ability to demonstrate and describe their robot's design through a team presentation; the actual robot's performance; team sportsmanship on and off the field; and the team's overall team image. Way to go Generals!
