Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy’s High School Robotics Team, Beak Squad, went 11-0 in Columbus last weekend winning the State Championship. This marks the team’s 4th win as Ohio State Champions in the past 5 seasons!
“One of many things I love about CHCA is that our students have the opportunity to explore and develop all of their God-given talents and abilities,” says Sarah Hendrix, Team Head Coach at Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy. “In the case of robotics, these students demonstrate, strengthen, and honor incredible gifts that are often overlooked. More importantly, robotics offers some of our students a place to find purpose, even if (especially if) they aren’t a stereotypical ‘techie’.”
In addition to being 2023 Ohio State Champions, the Beak Squad had the following accomplishments:
- Regional Championship Winner in Cleveland competing against teams from OH, KY, IL, WV, PA, WI, and NY.
- World Championship Finalists in Houston competing against 600 of the best teams in the world.
- Technical Award Winners at every competition - Industrial Design Award (2), Quality Award (1).
- International statistical rank 26/3294 teams in the world (99th percentile).
The team enters the off-season excited and energized to welcome new members and grow the team’s skills and capabilities in mechanical design, electrical engineering, programming & control systems, strategy & data analysis, marketing & communications, and community/educational outreach.
The Beak Squad is sponsored by Ethicon, The Brown Dog Café, Honeywell Intelligrated, Gold Medal, NASA, CLIF Bar, and a team of mentors and community advocates without whom none of these accomplishments would be possible.
