The students programmed a robot to throw Frisbees at varying distances.

The students and their advisor/coach, Jeremy Bydlon, told the coalition about the many benefits of the robotics program – how they raise their own money to participate in competitions with other robotics teams (there are more than 180 in the state), how they’ve acquired business-related skills, and how 20 of the program’s 22 graduates have landed science-related jobs.
