The rookie season of Fairfield Prep's Robotics Club is underway facilitated by Mrs. Deirdre Cannan of the Computer Science department. The team is busy engineering its entry to the FIRST TECH CHALLENGE regional competition in Bennington, New Hampshire scheduled for Saturday, March 12th.

This year's competition, Get Over It!, challenges students to design, build and program a robot that can work in tandem with an alliance team's robot to score the most points during the challenge period. Top scoring teams advance to the national championships in St. Louis, Missouri on April 27th. Pictured above: Adam Kee ‘12, Jacob Simkovitz ‘12, Tim Keenoy ‘12, Ethan Kee ‘14 and Kyle Ryan ‘13.
