Cherokee County Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

The Chero­kee County Ca­reer and Tech­nol­ogy School is proud to host the 3rd an­nual VEX Ro­bot­ics Tour­na­ment at Gads­den State Com­mu­nity Col­lege Chero­kee Arena on Jan. 30, 2016.

The event, pre­sented by the Ro­bot­ics Education & Com­pe­ti­tion Foun­da­tion, will con­sist of over 47 teams of stu­dents who are tasked with de­sign­ing and build­ing a ro­bot to play against other teams from around the re­gion in a game-based en­gi­neer­ing chal­lenge. Class­room STEM con­cepts are put to the test on the play­ing field as stu­dents learn life­long skills in team­work, lead­er­ship, com­mu­ni­ca­tions, and more. Lo­cal cham­pi­ons go on to com­pete against the best in the world at VEX Worlds each April!

In ad­di­tion to the com­pe­ti­tion, this years’ event will fea­ture a Ca­reer Tech Expo in­clud­ing a Vir­tual Lin­coln Welder, Vir­tual Paint Booth, Vir­tual Ex­ca­va­tor, Laser Etcher, Cos­me­tol­ogy Nail Care, Busi­ness Depart­ment Key­board Chal­lenge and the Ro­bot Tech­nol­ogy Park will have their 53’ Ro­bot Trailer.

Come out and see the fu­ture of our work­force!
