Stuttgart EAST robotics team's hard work pays off at Little Rock BEST Robotics Competition.

The Stuttgart EAST Ricebird Robotics Team traveled to the University of Arkansas at Little Rock on October 24, 2009, to compete in the Little Rock BEST Robotics Competition. The team had spent the six weeks prior to the competition date designing, building, and testing their robot. The team faced several mechanical issues during the competition and was not able to compete in three different rounds of the competition. Showing a resiliency commonly found in EAST students, the team rallied to reach the finals and finish third. The team also won the "Most Robust Machine" award.

The team was assisted throughout the six weeks by Robert Floyd (former SHS EAST student and Robotics Team member) and SHS EAST Facilitator, Jonathan Watson.

This is the second year Stuttgart EAST has competed in the BEST Robotics Competition.
