On November 5th 2017, Team 341 hosted its 18th annual off-season robotics competition, Ramp RiotWe hosted 46 teams from 5 different states and collected 604 cans of food for donation to a local food cupboard. The day was an amazing success and NBC10 even dropped by for a visit. Ramp Riot 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!

Below are just some of the incredible results and a list of sponsors, organizations, and individuals to which we are grateful. There are also a few pictures attached. Please take a moment to read the list of appreciations and reflect upon all of the help that we receive.

There are some amazing videos our students worked on that you might also want to check out:
