Montgomery Catholic kicked-off their Auburn BEST Robotics series on August 27th. The Catholic math team will compete against teams from all over the state in a chance to show off their combined engineering, customer relations, and marketing skills. Dr. Profio, a math teacher at Catholic, helped in assembling his best BEST students at Montgomery Catholic. Other teachers such as Mr. Pitts and Mr. Johnson also assist in mentoring the students to further their math and engineering skills.
The customer relations team welcomed all of the other teams with goody bags filled with pencils, which is important for any math competition, and a card for important dates for the Robotics series. Lauren Smith, a 10th grader from Catholic, directs the customer relations department. The group of high school students used this time to examine the field, which will be navigated by the Montgomery Catholic robot designed by upcoming engineers headed by Leo Petters, a senior from Catholic.
Check out the Montgomery Catholic informative and attractive booth created by the marketing crew directed by Carol Edwards and Rebecca White. The RoboKnights passed out flyers and other goodies at Mall Day on September 28, in Auburn, Alabama, and will take the stage on Competition Day, October 11. Come by and support Team 13! GO KNIGHTS!
