The District 833 School Board recognized a couple of local robotics teams and enjoyed a demonstration by the TermiRaiders and East Ridge Robotic Ominous Raptors (ERRORs) on June 8.

The ERRORs won the North Star Regional Championship in April for the second consecutive year, and ranked 24th out of a field of 75 at the FIRST Robotics Competition World Championships in late April in St. Louis.

"While our teams are extremely talented and featured around the state and nation, the interest starts with innovation and passionate middle school involvement, too," Assistant Superintendent Mike Johnson wrote in an administrative report to the school board.

Oltman Middle School's robotics team, the TermiRaiders, feeds the Park High School robotics program, and robotics mentors are working to build other District 833 middle school programs, as well.
