Over the weekend, the BB&N robotics team traveled to the University of New Haven to compete in the annual Vex Robotics Competition. Sixty organizations attended from all over New England to put their robots to the test. The competition asks that the robots collect plastic blocks and either stack them on top of one another or deposit them in elevated cups.
One of the team leaders, Stephen Fanning '20 highlighted, "The best part of this competition was probably our 4th game, where we were facing two solid teams, and our partner's robot completely shut off, but we still managed to win the contest with a score of 36-33." Out of the 60 teams, BB&N made it to the quarterfinal round in the team competition and finished 5th in the skill contest.
The BB&N robotics team is looking forward to making improvements to their robot and continuing to rise in the competitive circuit.
