This past weekend we had 16 members of the Benicia High Robotics Team compete in the regional RoboRave robotics competition in Silicon Valley.

We are extremely proud of all the effort the students put into their robots and their perseverance during the two-day event. Our four teams competed in 3 different events and every student walked away with a gold, silver or bronze medal (and cash prizes!)
