Big robotics win for the ‘Birds’ (both Redbirds and the Phoenix)

image002Congratulations to the Cofrin School of Business-sponsored De Pere Redbirds Middle School robotics team and their coach, UW-Green Bay Associate Prof. Gaurav, on a first-place finish in the Regional FLL Robotics Competition organized at Lakeshore Tech College, Saturday, Nov 10. This rookie team was one of 27 to compete for the championship trophy.

“The students solved robotic challenges and researched creative solution for a ‘hydro’ problem,” Bansal said. “Our team visited NEW Water and talked to Sewer In-charge from Green Bay Public Works to come up with a creative robotic solution to prevent excess storm water entering our sanitary sewer system, and eventually reaching NEW Water sewer treatment plant.”

The win allows the team to proceed to the sectional tournament which will be on Dec. 10 at Waukesha West High School, Waukesha. In preparing for the next round the team is asking that you watch this video, leave comments, and share with others.
