 ROBOTICS

Congratulations to the Robotics team for becoming semifinalists at the WPI First Robotics Competition last Friday. The Robopanthers were invited to join the blue alliance with Team Phoenix from Nashua, New Hampshire and the Stem Whalers from New London, CT.

The Holliston Robopanthers was chosen for the blue alliance because of their robot’s ability to climb in record time.
