Robotics team to compete in regionals

GENEVA – The Geneva High School Robotics Team built approximately a $3,500 robot for the upcoming regional U.S. FIRST Robotics competition, which will take place April 4 through 6 at the University of Illinois-Chicago Pavillion.

This year’s competition, called “The Ultimate Ascent,” will involve about 50,000 students worldwide who are building robots to sling Frisbees into various levels of goals for points.

At the end, the robot may attempt to climb a pyramid for bonus points.

GHS students began designing their robot in January with the help of local volunteers and funding from their sponsors, The Label Printers, MayTec, Burgess Norton and Dan Ross Allstate Agency.
