Congratulations to Sparta Bots, the robotics team at Stratford’s Academy of Science and Engineering, for coming out on top at the Smoky Mountain Regionals!

Stratford was part of the alliance team that included Rohawktics from Knoxville and Roboteers from Tremont, Illinois. They outperformed nearly fifty teams from Kansas, Illinois, Arkansas, Pennsylvania, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, West Virginia and Tennessee.

A big shout out to David Peters and Universal Robotics for mentoring our team! It was truly a great moment to witness for our students and our school!”

Stratford has participated in the Smoky Mountain Regionals since 2013. Learn more about the robotics competition here.
