Sponsoered by VPI Industries Inc, the team competed in two competitions and worked to design and create their robot during the 8 week build period. Students dedicated their after school time working, collaborating, and learning together. The build sessions took place both at a student's homes and at the VPI factory.
The challenge was to build a robot that can pick up, carry, and shoot a large in flatted ball. Teams from all over the world travel to compete with one another. The teams are broken up into a blue and red alliance with 3 robot teams from different areas on each side.
The future engineers of America are hard at work!
The team is coached by former Holmdel High School teacher, Mat Weisfeld and Holmdel parent Robert Stevenson.
Mentored by former Holmdel students Jason Kahn and Stephanie Tan.
Members include: Kimberly Tan, Jesse Stevenson, David Liu and many others.
