Fairfield Prep Robotics Team participates in statewide competition

The Fairfield Prep Robotics Team, the JesuBots, took part in NE FIRST’s First Tech Challenge robotics competition at the American School for the Deaf on Saturday, Feb. 8.

The JesuBots competed against 24 other teams representing schools and clubs from throughout Connecticut as part of a program centered on designing, building and coding their own robots. The JesuBots designed the robot over the course of several months.  This was the second of two competitions that saw the JesuBots in action.

With the competitive season now in the books, the Prep robotics team will continue to develop engineering and programming skills as they anxiously await the kickoff of next year’s competition in September.

“This year, the robot’s programming — or coding — was done exclusively by freshmen, which is a good sign for the future of the JesuBots,” said Science Teacher Mr. Anthony Dotolo, advisor on the Prep Robotics Team.
