Pantherbots, the fourth grade robotics team from Pleasant Run Elementary in MSD Warren Township, is one of over 150 teams competing in the Indianapolis VEX Robotics Championship competition last weekend. They participated in the elementary school division and came away successfully having earned the Ballard Excellence Award for their entry. This qualifies the team for a spot at the upcoming State Championships scheduled for late February at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI).
