Local students immerse selves in robotics

By From page A3 | July 16, 2014

The Techie Tigers Robotics: Team 8290 are at the library every Tuesday to share with the public what they’re up to. They’d like to recruit more members as well as collect $2,500 in donations to cover travel and entry fees for their next First Tech Challenge competition in December. 

The team of local FTC robotics students (the bulk attend Rolling Hills Middle School, but also Oak Ridge, St. Francis and Cordova High) built their robot, Mild Sauce, though they’ll customize it once given the challenge this fall.
