Three grade 11 students from Mark Isfeld school, Damian Parlee, Nicolas Parlee and Adrian Humphry, have recently qualified to compete in the Vex World Robotic Championships to be held this coming April in Anaheim, California.

Three grade 11 students from Mark Isfeld school, Damian Parlee, Nicolas Parlee and Adrian Humphry, have recently qualified to compete in the Vex World Robotic Championships to be held this coming April in Anaheim, California.  The Vex Robotics Competition is the largest high school robotics program in the world with over 4,800 teams from 20 different countries competing in over 300 worldwide qualifying tournaments to earn one of the 420 available spots at the world championships.  The three students have been involved in the robotics program at Mark  Isfeld School since Grade 8 and have been steadily improving with each successive tournament.

They went to the world championships last year and placed an impressive 42 out of 420 teams.  This year they hope to place in the top 16.  The students qualified for the Worlds by getting to the final round at the BC Provincial Championships and they are also currently ranked 13th in the world in programming skills. Programming skills is a separate individual component of the competition where a single robot autonomoulsy drives around scoring points.

The three students have spent countless hours building and rebuilding their robots and have even built a full sized competition court in one of their living rooms.  This court measures 12 x 12 feet!

 The three students thank you for any support that you can give them as they head to Anahaim.
