Just back from the Finger Lakes Regional FIRST Robotics competition, the “OxBE4” Team 3044 has a right to be proud of their showing.
The group of 21 members of the area high school robotics club participated in the regional event at Rochester Institute of Technology. The challenge this year was called “Breakaway,” and consisted of two alliances of three teams each competing on a 27′ x 54′ soccer field with bumps attempting to earn points by collecting soccer balls in their goals.
The students designed and built a robot called “Roboxxy” in a timeframe of six weeks leading up to the regional competition. The Team 3044 entry proved it could traverse the bumps on the field and was able to score goals with accuracy. The students rose to the challenge, learned a lot and had a great time at the competition.
Guyson Corporation is proud to be a sponsor of the BSHS team again in 2010.
