Stallion Robotics Team Wins Industrial Design Award and Finalist Award at the South Florida Regional Competition
The Wyld Stallyns, the robotics team led by Tai Donovan from American Heritage Schools, Palm Beach Campus, battled through an intense series of qualifying and playoff matches, making it to the final rounds of the FIRST Robotics South Florida Regional Competition (FRC) at the Palm Beach Convention Center.
The Stallyns also earned the Industrial Design Award, a prestigious award sponsored by General Motors honoring the team that “best demonstrates industrial design principles, striking a balance between form, function, and aesthetics.” This award would not have been possible without the continued dedication of team co-president Kelly Breen, Class of 2023. The team also won the Finalist Award for finishing as the #2 team in the competition; special thanks to the drivers on the team, Sebastian Hernandez and Yash Patel, Class of 2023, for the hours spent programming and practicing.
Ava Silpe, Class of 2025, won the Safety Captain Award for establishing the best Safety Program of the 35 teams present at the competition.
Overall, the competition was extremely successful due to the combined efforts of many, and Team 5472 will be competing in the Orlando Regional this weekend. Congratulations, Robotics Team!
