Millington Middle School’s VEX Robotics Program Receives Multiple Honors

Star Staff Reports
Millington Middle School started its Stallions VEX Robotics Program in September 2015 under the direction of Science and STEM teacher, Malcolm Sanders.  The VEX Robotics Program now has a total of twenty students, forming two girls teams and three boys teams.   For the 2017-2018 school year, Millington competed in three VEX challenges.  All five teams earned an invitation to the Tennessee State VEX Robotics Competition, where each team qualified for finals, four of them in the top ten.
Thanks to numerous sponsorships and donations from Millington citizens and businesses, the students traveled to the state robotics competition, where they came away with amazing results.  The Stallions earned second and third place in finals, as well as the Build Award, and the Inspire Award for their STEM Research Project.
The robotics program recently celebrated the successful year with a luncheon in honor of their sponsors, where Selina Sparkman, Millington’s principal, expressed gratitude and pride, “We are so thankful to the community for the amazing support we continue to receive for this program, and we are extremely proud of our teams.  We are working hard to build a program that will prepare our students to take advantage of the many STEM opportunities that will be available to them in the future.”
