Students compete in battle of robots
AVERY — Can they build a better robot? EHOVE students, partnering with NASA and local engineers, are certainly going to try.
Students in the college engineering tech prep program spent Jan. 6 in Cleveland for the kickoff of the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition (FRC), a nationwide contest in which student teams build a remote controlled robot that competes with other student-built robots in a series of short games.
The college engineering tech prep class (a partnership between EHOVE Career Center and BGSU Firelands) is joining with local engineers and NASA to design and build their robot in six weeks. Given a common set of basic parts, students put their knowledge of mechanical design, robotics and physics to the test as they create their robot. At a championship event, typically held in university arenas, teams battle for the title of the best robot. Referees oversee the competition and judges present awards to teams for design, technology, sportsmanship and commitment to FIRST. The Chairman's Award is FIRST's highest honor.
FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is a unique varsity sport of the mind designed to help high-school-aged young people discover how interesting and rewarding the life of engineers and researchers can be. EHOVE instructors Jim McIntyre and Steve Spriggs are overseeing the EHOVE FIRST team, which includes: Edison — Paul Bansek, Nicholas Brunetti, Cory Rinehart, Brett Thayer and Jacob Thomas; New London — Dustin Asmus, Carl Balzer, Jordan Bracken, Andrea Chase, Gregory Covert and Allen Jones; Norwalk — Kyle Mowry; South Central — Jay Schwanger; Western Reserve — Donald Stahl and Aaron Woody.
