Berkshire's First Junior Bot Team Competing

robot

Berkshire's first AWT Junior Bots robotics team is competing at Lakeland Community College this Saturday, April 27th in the 2019 RoboBots Battle. Anyone can attend to watch the battles - it is a free event! There are five 7th graders on the team led by Miss Mele who will battle their robot against other schools' robots in the double elimination tournament. Our students are in the beetle weight class (3 pounds or less) with 32 other teams. The students designed and built the robot themselves with help from our volunteer partners at Kinetico, Phil and Josh, who cut the plates, drilled the holes, and offered additional knowledge in design and engineering.

  • High School battle begins at 8:30am (Berkshire does not have a high school team, but it's fun to watch!)
  • Junior Bots battle begins at 11:00am - these take place during high school battle breaks
  • Lakeland is also streaming the competition live if you want to check it out from home - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_V7eUyiwZOs
