Second Championship Victory for Robotics Team

For the second year in a row, the Cushing Robotics Team took home in the win in the Oakmont Regional Robotics Championship. The competition consisted of 30 teams and in the final match, CA went up against the North Middlesex Patribots, who had placed second in this year’s national Vex robotics competition. Says faculty advisor Jamie Leger, “The team redesigned the entire robot just before the competition and finished it the night before the event, and it’s astonishing that they won, considering they had no practice time. The design principle they used was the KIS method – Keep It Simple. And it worked!”

Congratulations to team members: Charie You, Marissa Myerson, Ziran Li, Pranjal Tiwari, Damien Dunn, and Deniz Yarsuvat.
