St. Patrick's Catholic High School's Irish Iron Robotics Team has returned from the recent world championship competition in St. Louis after finishing in the top one third.
"It was a respectable finish and a memorable experience for everyone," says Diane Yurkewich, Science Department Head at St. Patrick's. "The team has already begun to think about next year!"
Students from several countries around the globe participated in the international competition, including Australia, Israel and China. It was the first time the St. Patrick's team competed in the world event, after winning earlier this year at a qualifying competition at Ryerson University in Toronto.
The four day event in St. Louis also included workshops on a variety of topics, including leadership, which were attended by members of the the Irish Iron team.
"We want to thank the many, many sponsors, without whose generous support our students could not have achieved this tremendous success, nor participated in such a memorable experience," says Mrs. Yurkewich.
