The Robolancers from Central High School won the Vehicle Performance Award at the 2021 Greater Philadelphia Seaperch competition Friday. The team’s underwater robot safely disposed of underwater “mines” and “debris” to make the “ocean” cleaner and safer. Nailah Shabazz was the team captain, and Calvin Macatantan was the vehicle operator.
Several Coalition teams competed in the event, which is organized by the US Navy and Temple University. Sincere Walker from Parkway Center City Middle College also got a special shoutout for carrying his team to competition.
