Polaris Robotics and Automation Technology Team
takes 2nd place at SkillsUSA Nationals

Polaris Career Center PLTW students Patrick Ziska and Clint Causey  recently took second place in the nation at the SkillsUSA National Leadership Skills competition in Kansas City, Missouri.  Their robot, with which they had previously won first place in the SkillsUSA Ohio competition, was required to pick up a block from a loading station and move it to other stations to complete all the tasks required.  They accomplished these tasks by writing over 200 lines of computer programming which instructed the robot to perform the required tasks without manual intervention. 






Patrick Ziska, Polaris's Outstanding Senior in the Pre-Engineering program, graduated from Strongsville High School in 2009.  Clint Causey has completed his junior year at Strongsville High School, and will return to Polaris in the fall for his senior year in the PLTW Pre-Engineering program. “These students would not even be in this competition had we not implemented the PLTW curriculum--and specifically the CIM course--into our school,” instructor Mike Haydn said.  

Polaris Career Center is located in Middleburg Heights, Ohio. Our congratulations go out to Pat and Clint.  

Here is a video of the contest:
