Thanks to those who upheld a fundraisers, we have some of a income indispensable to contest opposite other robotic teams in this year’s game, Recycle Rush — a recycling-themed diversion played by dual alliances of 3 robots each. Robots measure points by stacking totes on scoring platforms, capping those stacks with recycling containers, and scrupulously disposing of pool noodles, representing litter. Recycle Rush certainly will poise problems we would be incompetent to solve but a inexhaustible support we receive.
This year, Team 237 will face regular-season competitions during Wilby High School in Waterbury, as good as during Bryant University in Rhode Island. If we qualify, we will contest during a New England Championships during Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, Mass., and a Nationals in St. Louis.
