SAGINAW – The Grayling robotics team, the RoboVikes, participated in the State FIRST Robotics meet held in Saginaw recently. The spokesperson of the team, Janet McBride stated, “We’re really proud of this group of students. They have learned how to work together as a team, with all the functions supporting each other. We have worked really hard this year and had great success. We have a great group of mentors who work with the students. Without them, we would not have had this great season.” 

The team qualified for the World Champion which is held at Detroit this year. 

“We are thrilled to be able to attend!” McBride said.
