Chapter Grants for Top Robotics Teams

The chapter gave $1,000 in grants to notable teams competing in March's Heartland Regional Robotics Championship at Cross County High School, Stromsburg, Nebraska. The event was a VEX World Championship and a U.S. Open Robotics Championship qualifier for high school teams from Nebraska and Iowa. The chapter provided teams the $400 Honor Award, $250 President's Award, $150 Innovation Award and $100 awards for Skills and Perseverance. Bernard Lichvar, president of iConsult4u, represented the chapter at the event and presented the awards. Lichvar, who holds a doctorate in information systems, reported that the participants were quite energetic and devoted to learning more about the robotics field. He said there were some unique robots at the event. One was constructed out of wood, while another team used automobile seat motors to mobilize its robot. The chapter's Honor Award went to a team that created its robot entirely out of 3-D parts. This same team scored high in the skills and challenge point categories.
