Over the past six weeks, Hillsborough High School's RoboRaiders designed, built, wired and programmed their own robot to compete in this year's round of FIRST Robotic Competitions.
The game this year—we haven't heard any hints—is Rebound Rumble, so we're excited to see how the students' robot takes to it.
But the team's efforts go beyond the designing and building side. During the process, they'll work on promoting the team through their website, organizing and creating community events, and working on other outreach projects.
Here's where we'll be this week:
Tuesday: The RoboRaiders are packing this year’s robot for their competition season, so we’ll have photos and information from the Tuesday packing day on Wednesday.
Wednesday: Ever wonder which of Hillsborough’s business pay the most in taxes? Look for a story on that today.
Thursday: Come out to meet your Patch folk, while learning how to benefit from the site. We’re at the library from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., so be sure to stop by and say hello.
Friday: Several Hillsborough figures will spend a day teaching in Hillsborough schools today, and we’ll be there to see how it goes. Look for the story on Saturday.
