Full house turns out to support Hoops for a Cause fundraiser
BERT 133 qualifies for World Robotics championship in St. Louis
FROM STAFF REPORTS
Bonny Eagle's robotics team, BERT 133, came in 31st at the three-day, head to head district championship competition at the University of New Hampshire, a finish that qualified them to return to St. Louis again this year for the World Robotics Championship. Sadly, the team has decided not to go because of lack of funds. But that doesn't take away from their repeat accomplishments this year in what is termed the "varsity Sport for the Mind."
This year 64 teams participated from around New England on April 6-9 in the Whittemore Center Arena at UNH. This year’s game was called "First Steamworks," an industrial airship-themed competition consisting of two alliances of three robots each trying to maneuver themselves into position to shoot balls into a giant catch basin. You can watch some of the action in the BERT 133 videos at this link.
BERT 133 has already started fundraising for next year in hopes of being able to advance past the regional competition. They will hold a bottle drive on April 15 in Buxton at ITS inc.
