Congrats to the Raytown High/Raytown South High Robotics team, Fire and Ice, who earned the Rockwell Collins Innovate Award at their competition recently at Notre Dame de Sion. The award is presented to the team with the most innovative and creative robot design.

Elements of this award include elegant design, robustness, and ‘out of the box’ thinking related to design. The Raytown Fire and Ice team was the only recipient of the award at the competition.

The team will now compete in the First Tech Challenge state qualifying robotics competition on Feb. 9 at Blue Springs High School.
