Carmel Valley youths win second place at robot competition

Wintriss Technical School hosted the 2012 International Autonomous Robot Competition (IARoC) at the Reuben H Fleet Science Center last weekend.  Competitors in this two- day event programmed their robots to race, navigate a maze, and avoid obstacles to seek a beacon.

In addition, they put on a technical presentation for a panel of judges and educated the public through a series of interactive sessions.  Pictured are Vic Wintriss, Alex Goskowicz (age 13), and Jake Williams (age 14).  The boys, both from Carmel Valley, won second place trophies and a cash prize for their efforts.  They have been taking classes in computer programming at Wintriss Technical School on High Bluff Road.  The non-profit private school is dedicated to teaching children, age 10 and up, computer programming in Java.
