US FIRST regional competitions

Robotics Science

A few weekends ago I had the chance to check out the Northeast regionals for USFIRST in Boston. Above, Matt and Chris of Blackstone Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School, Team 61 tell about being involved.

Here is a segment of one round of the competition:

Norwell High School has a great robotics program mentored by teachers Ross Kowalski and Mark Herman.

Could you tell us some of your experiences with USFIRST or other engineering competitions? Add your thoughts in the comments and please contribute your photos and video to the MAKE Flickr pool.

    I found the two years I spent as a mentor for Boston based Team 1919 to be one of the more rewarding experiences I had while working in a public high school. It is great to see kids applying math and science, and I really loved the opportunity to pass on some of the practical mechanical and technical skills I possess. A bit shout out to BU’s Overclocked Team 246 for being our first year participant mentor!
