Robotics team wins top award
Submitted By Sarita Bhatia
Whirring robots, shouting, and the clanging of tools and toolboxes set the stage for intense competition at last FebruaryÕs For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) Velocity Vortex challenge. Competing robots had to lift yoga balls, fire wiffle balls, and much more.
Washington High School freshmen Roma Bhatia, Sahir Qureshi, Malin Sapkota, and Pranit Panda, better known as the team We Love Pi, worked for four months designing their robot.
Besides the robot competition itself, the team had to present their design concept and methods to judges. The Rockwell Collins Award was presented by Rockwell Collins, a pioneer in the design and production of innovative solutions for the aerospace and defense industries.
