Upper School’s robotics team closed the competition season with their best performance, winning three of five matches at the final league tournament last weekend as part of the FIRST Tech Challenge.

Project-based, hands-on FIRST programs introduce students to coding, programming, and engineering in an environment where students work collaboratively to solve a yearly robotics challenge.

Nicknamed “Betty,” this year’s MPA robot was designed, built, programmed, and operated by seniors Zach Guido, Shane Liu, Chloe Phoenix, Rustam Wallace-McFarland, and Luming Zhao; juniors Hunter Vujevic and Sherman Wang; and freshmen Andrew McClendon and Joshua Sun.
