Local students to compete in regional robotics competition

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - A local robotics team made up of students from Rome, Holland Patent, Whitesboro, Deerfield and Sauquoit is preparing for a major competition.
 
The "Geared Up" robotics team won the first tech championship, putting them in the running for what's known as Super-Regionals.
     
For that competition, the team will travel to York, Pennsylvania next month.  
 
"I was introduced by a friend of mine and it's interesting to see all the different ways robotics can be applied," said 10th grader, Claire Parisi.  
 

The competition will take place from April 3-5, and if they do well there, the team could make it to "worlds" in Michigan.
