Two Bellefontaine High School seniors showcased their skills at a recent state competition.
Beau Salyer and Landon Gibbs competed in Robotics and Automation Technology in the Ohio SkillsUSA State Finals at the Columbus Convention Center and scored a 90 percent, which landed them in fifth place in the state.
The contest took almost four hours to show the judges various skills which included flow charts, sketching work cells, multiple materials handling jobs, configuring inputs and outputs (stack light), file manipulation, data registers, and other programming challenges.
BHS CTE Engineering extended congratulations to the two seniors on their strong performance at the state level in their first-ever robotics competition. Both students completed their FANUC – Handling Tool Operation & Programming J2P-31-IACT Industry credentials this year as well.
Shawn Miller, Travis Hunsicker and Aaron Garver are the STEM, Industrial Technology, and Engineering instructors at BHS.
