Members of the high school robotics team were honored by the Board of Education during a recent meeting.

Technology teacher Brian Chalmers introduced the team members present and thanked the mentors who worked with the students during the build season and competition before the students showcased the capabilities of their robot. His overview emphasized how learning about robotics in a classroom connects to real-world engineering challenges.

“They always give us a really interesting demonstration,” said BOE President Kathleen Brennan of the students’ presentation of the complex robotic system, the design modifications and the obstacles they face during qualifying competitions. “It’s nice to see firsthand the work that they do.”
