Ramp Riot XVII


On November 5th, Team 341 hosted its 17th annual off-season robotics competition, Ramp Riot. The day was an amazing success, even with a change in venue due to school construction. The competition was strong and fierce throughout the day between the 52 teams we hosted from 4 different states and collected 732 cans of food for donation to a local food cupboard. The day would not have run as smoothly as it did without the hard work and dedication of all of our students, parents, coaches, volunteers, sponsors, and partner organizations!

We’d like to congratulate the incredible teams listed below, as well as thank the sponsors, organizations and individuals to which we are grateful.
