Robotics Success Celebrated
The history-making NRHS Robotics Team was recognized Feb. 18 by the Board of Education after becoming the first Robotics Team to represent NRHS in a robotics competition.
The team competed Feb. 15 in the VEX Robotics Competition at Milford Junior High School.
They modestly went to the competition hoping to win just one match. They went eight and two in the qualifying matches catapulting them into the quarter-finals and an unexpected 10th place. A total of 32 teams competed.
Team members are sophomores William Swart, Jordan Shuck, Brandon Gibson, and Charles Stammen. They are all students in NRHS teacher Alan Lindner’s Robotics II class. Mr. Lindner is also the Robotics Team coach.
During the recognition, Mr. Lindner and Robotic Team members talked about the competition and provided a demonstration of their robot.
