This small team of 9 students, 5 boys and 4 girls, is making Perry High School well known in the STEM based organization of FIRST. The Rambots won the All Star Rookie Award and the Highest Seed Rookie Award at the Kettering University event, the Rookie Inspiration Award at the Lansing event at Mason High School, and ranked high enough to be invited to States at SVSU one week ago. The Rambots finished ranked 5th in the Consumers Energy Division, placing the team into the Quarterfinals.
