SD 308 Students are Part of Winning Robotics Team

Narrative from Naraj Viju Sulaja at Murphy Junior High on his participation in the Illinois FIRSTTech Challenge.


"Our team, Rounded Cube 18183 is a rookie team competing in the First Tech Challenge 2020-2021 season. On our team, there were 4 programmers including me and 4 builders. I, along with one other person, focused on autonomous programming (pre-programmed commands for the robot) while two other team members focused on tele-op (driver-controlled movement). Through a lot of effort, our team was able to build and program a robot that took us through the regionals and to the state level. Unfortunately, the official competition did not go past the state level due to the remote nature of the season. We were the recipients of seven awards that were given to us over the course of the season, with five of them coming from the regional and state tournaments."

The Rounded Cube team included representatives from four of our schools: Niraj V - Murphy Jr High, Kyran S - Oswego East HS, Rajiv J -Marc T - Plank Jr High, Zoya S - Plank Jr High, and Prabhav V - Bednarcik Jr High.

Congratulations to our SD308 students for their great success in the First Tech Challenge!
