The Beavercreek Robotics team presented their creation to Beavercreek students in the commons on May 3rd during lunch. Their robot had taken part in a national FIRST (For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) robotics tournament in Detroit where they performed exceptionally well as a rookie team. The machine’s purpose is to pick up boxes and then to either stack or move them from one place to another. Boxes can be lifted up to 8 feet vertically by an extending mechanism in the main body of the robot.

If any students are interested in joining the robotics team, they are now recruiting for next year. Vault 6936, as the team is called, was created late in the summer of 2017 and distinguished themselves by winning Rookie All-Star and achieving the Highest Rookie Ranking internationally. The team emphasizes that millions of dollars in scholarships are available to those participating in FIRST teams. Alex Azar, a sophomore on the robotics team, says, “We would love to have new members; we can even help teach people new skills.” The team will also be demonstrating their creation at Ferguson on May 7th.
