When eighth graders from Bob Graham Education Center competed at the Junior Orange Bowl VEX IQ Tournament in November, their teams won awards for documenting how to build a well-crafted robot in their engineering notebook. Those wins entitle the Robocats to compete at the South Florida State VEX IQ Middle School Tournament and at the 2020 CREATE U.S. Open Robotics Championship - VEX IQ - Middle School Division, in Iowa, both in March.
