Magic Valley Robotics Team Goes To National Championships


By Andrew Reed

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV) Some local high school students took home a big trophy over the weekend.

Four teams of seven students competed in a robotics competition against peers from Alaska, Montana, Washington, and Oregon.

The magic valley teams took home 1st, 7th, and 13th place.

"We were really the underdogs in this competition no one ever expects the Idaho team to win the Idaho regional. It was our goal to be the first and we did it and we are ecstatic about it, it was awesome,” said team captain Briten Perron.

The students are headed to St. Louis in April for the national championships.
