Middle and high schools get into robotics groove at RPI


On Dec. 10, robotics teams from Albany High School, North Albany Academy, Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School and William S. Hackett Middle School converged upon the halls of Rensslaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy.

Their mission?

For the middle-school students, it was to design and program robots that would perform tasks to improve the safety of food on its journey from farm to fork. The three Albany teams joined 10 other teams from around the Capital Region in this regional FIRST LEGO League competition. North Albany's team took first place for robot design and robot performance.

For the high-school students, it was to compete in a VEX robotics competition RPI holds every year. The Albany High team competed against 10 area teams and came away with a third-place finish. Their next stops are competitions in New Hampshire and Connecticut.
