Robotics Team Ships Robot
February 24, 2010By Tanner Smith of Peachtree Ridge High School
In the robotics club, the club participates in a organization called FIRST - For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, where teams across the world are supposed to build a robot to play a new game every year in only six weeks. Yesterday, February 23rd, the Robolions shipped their robot that they have been building, working on, and testing. The team will not see the robot again until next week when they are competing at the Peachtree Regional. The Robolions are working hard to ensure that the robot is going to be the best at competition, even if it means working without having anything to test with.
In previous years, the team has won the Peachtree Regional twice, and has since gone to the National competition hosted at the Georgia Dome every year to compete with teams all around the world.
