REVELING IN ROBOTS: Shepherdstown Middle School students recently represented Jefferson County Schools at a VEX IQ Robotic Competition at James Rumsey Technical Institute in Martinsburg. 

Two teams of the Cardinals Land/Air Robotics Club, a Shepherdstown Middle program, were among nine teams participating in the NASA-funded robotics competition.

The Shepherdstown Middle teams included 6th and 7th graders who called themselves The Live Wires and The Shepherds. The teams competed in eight rounds of a challenge that required them to design and build a robot that could perform a series of autonomous functions. Both teams advanced to the final round, with one winning second, the other tied for third place.
