Palma School’s Robotics Club, the Armored Patriots, attended their second tournament of the season on Saturday, January 28. Sixteen teams from around northern California were registered to compete at Cisco’s headquarters in San Jose. When the last gear ground and servo snapped, the Armored Patriots had a solid third place finish. It was not enough to qualify for the NorCals this year, but it was a great day for Mr. O’Brien and the Robotics Club!
