JACKSONVILLE—Episcopal High School of Jacksonville captured first and second place in the annual Florida Regional Botball 2002 Tournament at the University of North Florida earlier this month. Middle and high school students from eight area schools participated in the competition. The Episcopal team posted one of the highest scores seen in the regional botball tournaments that have been conducted so far this year across the nation.
The Episcopal team will be participating in the national botball tournament June 30-July 1 in Oklahoma City. Last year, the Episcopal team finished eighth nationally . Fletcher Middle School came in third. The tournament is the concluding event for a six weeks educational robotics program being featured in 12 different regions across the country. The program provides students and teachers alike with the opportunity to work with state-of-the- art robotics equipment not normally available to pre-college students. Botball Educational Robotics Programs are presented by the KISS Institute for Practical Robotics, a nonprofit organization dedicated to linking people and technology through robotics.
