Robots by the C - MERHS Robotics team
Competes in US FIRST Boston Regional
April 7,8th &9th Robots by the C, competed in US FIRST(for Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Competition at Boston University's Agganis Arena.
It was an intense three days. With a rock concert/sporting event atmosphere, the arena was filled with team members and fans that provided an everlasting cheering squad for each team. There were 52 teams from the New England area as well as from Canada and Turkey. Robots by the C had an impressive run. The arm and claw performed with precision to place the inflated tubes on the highest pegs to form the FIRST logo for extra points. The drivers and pit crew worked feverously to adjust and tweak the robot when necessary. In the end the team didn't win the competition but did come home winners for building a successful robot and teamwork.
The team wants to thank ALL the supporters, advisor Robert Meltz, Mentors Gary Gilbert, Dennis Carlberg, Joe Halloran, Mory Creighton, Nick Ferraca, Gail Halloran, Pam Scarafoni, Sara Creighton and Dana Burnham.
