Two Gateway Academy Vex Robotics teams are celebrating recent success, and one is heading to California after receiving an invitation from Google to take place in a tournament.
According to a news release from Christian County Public Schools, the November 17th Owensboro Innovative State Qualifier saw two teams from Gateway—Team 8349B and Team 83490-A—taking place in the last match. In the end, Team A took first place with Team B taking second.
Team A earned a prestigious invitation to the State VEX tournament that will be held in March at the EC3 campus in Elizabethtown. They also got an invitation to Google to compete in the Google Signature event the South Bay VEX Robotics Tournament at Google Headquarters Quad Campus in Sunnyvale, California.
They’re one of 30 teams outside the state of CA to be invited to this signature event.
