Wood River Robotics

Luke Dean, Ethan Wilson, John Chen and Griff Connelly have an opportunity to attend and compete at the VEX Robotics World Championships in Louisville, Ky April 25-28, 2018. They need help with registration costs and travel expenses from Hailey, ID to Louisville, KY and back. Can you help them attain their goal.

Two robotics teams from Wood River High School (WRHS) were part of
a three-team alliance that won first place honors at the 2018 Idaho VEX Robotics State Championship
on March 2. The competition, which was held at Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, brought
together 31 of the top high-school and middle-school robotics teams from across the state.
After finishing the qualifier rounds in second place overall, WRHS juniors Luke Dean and Ethan Wilson
(team “Arcade Box”) formed an alliance with two other teams — “HAVOC” from Ridgevue High School
in Nampa and “Yung Gravy,” composed of WRHS freshmen John Chen and Griffin Connelly — for the
final rounds of the contest. Together, their alliance advanced through the draw to the final match of
the day, where they emerged victorious after a fierce challenge from an alliance led by the 2016 and
2017 defending champions — the “Wayne Enterprises” team of WRHS seniors Carter Gerringa, Dawson
Hicks, Cameron Maxwell, Drew Merrick and Carson Smith.
