The GHS Robotics team participated in the NASA/VCU Robotics Competition last weekend. The event was sponsored by FIRST Robotics, a national organization that aims to create “a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes.”
The Junkyard Dogs worked over a six week period to design and build a robot that could compete in the LUNACY game. The goal is the collection of game pieces scattered across a low-friction surface and deposit them in the opposing team’s trailers, which are attached to the robots.
The GHS team brought home the Johnson & Johnson Gracious Professionalism award.
