The Mitkof Middle School robotics team will be traveling to Juneau this weekend for a region wide competition. Two teams made up of seventh and eighth graders will give presentations on solutions to problems facing Petersburg and participate in a robotics competition. The two teams will use robots they preprogrammed to perform several tasks. Each task is worth a certain amount of points, and the team with the most points wins. The sixth grade team competed in a competition on Saturday via video conference. The team took ninth place and won an award for their presentation on providing fresh produce to Petersburg.

“It’s a good learning experience,” said Coach Beau Ward. “They got to see how other teams did. That’s one of the quickest ways to increase their skills rapidly.”
