BHS Robotics Team Takes Home Imagery Award From Annual First Competition
The BHS Robotics team won the Imagery Award on day one of the FIRST Robotics competition at Boston University's Agganis Arena on Friday. The Imagery Award is described as "Celebrating attractiveness in engineering and outstanding visual aesthetic integration of machine and team appearance." The team's shipping crate was an eye-catcher at the event and the combination of the matching t-shirts and robot cover graphics really impressed the judges.
For those of you that could not make it, the team was 2-7 for the two day event. The robot worked exactly as the kids designed it and performed well thoughout the competition. The robot was online and funcational, scoring goals, playing some tough defense, effectively clearing out the midfield and never received a penalty.

Thanks to Lockheed-Martin and Mercury Computer Systems for their generous support of time and resources for the BHS Robotics Team.
