TINTON FALLS – The Ranney School Robot­ics Club has been working hard all year to design, build and drill their robots for multiple competitions. All their hard work paid off recently when one of the Upper School robotics teams, led by Raymond Moser ’15 of Shrewsbury, had the opportunity to travel to Anaheim, Calif., and compete in the VEX World Robotics Championship.

More than 15,000 people, including students, teachers, coaches and industry leaders attended the event, representing 24 countries. Approxi­mately 700 teams competed at the middle school, high school and college level.  Simply qualifying for the championship meet meant that the Ranney team ranked in the top 9 percent of all teams worldwide.

The event was streamed live and part of it was shown during the April 18 Ranney School Lower School Science Fair on the RSPA Panther Hall and Roberts Stage screen.

“The experience was extre­me­ly valuable because we learned many different methods of improving our robot’s speed, size and agility for next year,” said Noel Delgado, dean of students, who attended the competition with robotics team coach Raymond Moser. “With a larger robotics space planned for next year, a 2013-2014 robotics class offering, as well as several supporting gifts from families, our team will be larger, more enthusiastic, better equipped and superbly prepared for next year’s tournament. Our goal is to bring two of our teams to next year’s world championship.”
