Panther Robotics was founded in 2012 during the VEX Robotics Sack Attack season as a Middle School & High School combined team. In 2013 the team split into separate MS & HS teams. For two years the MS team focused on small local tournaments and experienced success at that level, but desired to do more. Panther Robotics decided to focus again on the official VEX game during the upcoming 2015-2016 season. That season the club gave birth to three teams that competed in events all over the state of Indiana. The club won two tournaments and a robot skills award in its first year, and sent one team to the CREATE US Open. This success further fed the teams desire to work hard to achieve even more success.
Panther Robotics headed into the 2016-2017 season with excitement and confidence. They added additional Middle School teams and once again added a High School Team (6842A) to compete in local events. Within the first three events of the season, Panther Robotics had won seven awards. They concluded their season with eight tournament wins, the most of any Indiana robotics organization that season. They also added three excellence awards and three robot skills awards. In the VEX Starstruck season, Panther Robotics sent two teams to the CREATE US Open and one team to the VEX World Championships.
Our numbers continue to grow as we head into the 2017-2018 In the Zone Season. Panther Robotics is excited about the outstanding team members that are joining us and look forward to another amazing season!
