Makatrix is composed of four Grade 12 students who specialize in information and communications technology, namely, John Ashley Alvarado, Enriquito Yamzon, Brian Bernabe and Fritz Rivera.


They will be accompanied by their coach, Zernie Pugao. The VEX Robotics World Championship aims to develop students’ skills in science, technology, engineering and math through hands-on experience in designing, building and programming robots.
