Robotics "co-opertition" at Hofstra University. This Regional event affords local high school students the opportunity to demonstrate their engineering skills, teamwork and desire to participate in a world class event.
Each team is charged with designing, building and testing (and redesigning, rebuilding and retesting) a robot that masters the unique annual challenge put forth. Simply put, this year's challenge is to build a robot that can throw frisbees accurately into specified goals and lift itself off the ground.
