On November 14, 2015, Team 341 hosted its 16th annual off-season robotics competition, Ramp Riot. The day was an exceptional success. We hosted 52 teams from 4 different states and collected 1,273 cans of food for donation to a local food cupboard. The day would not have been as amazing as it was without the hard work and dedication of all of our students, parents, coaches, volunteers, sponsors, and partner organizations!

Check out our team’s interview that was broadcast on BEN FM about the event. Special thanks to Kristen Herrmann for featuring us.
