South Forsyth team wins with robot that plants, harvests



The South Forsyth High School BEST Robotics Team won the BEST Award at the recent Georgia BEST Robotics Competition at GSU Perimeter College Clarkston Campus. The team was given six weeks to build and program a robot that would operate an irrigation valve, harvest vegetables, and plant seeds. In addition, the team created a company and marketing materials that covered community outreach, an 8-foot by 8-foot exhibit, an oral marketing presentation, t-shirt design, 30-page notebook with research paper and a web site. The team, sponsored by Automation Direct and Siemens, will proceed to South’s BEST regional championship in Auburn, Alabama, Dec. 3 and 4.
