Shorewood robotics team to compete in regional event at Qwest Field

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

This weekend, Team Pronto from Shorewood High School will join over 2,800 high school students at the QWEST Convention Center regional robotics event to compete for the right to go to the World's Competition in St. Louis in April.

These high school students had six weeks to design, prototype, and build a robot to perform a specific task. And now is the moment of truth. FRC combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology.

This free event is the largest Regional event in the world. Two separate fields with 50 teams on each field, joining together in alliances of teams of 3 to try to make it to the Championship. Come check out these young engineers in training.

As an added attraction, the Da Vinci Robot – the Robot that assists doctors in performing complex surgeries, will be on site on Friday and Saturday.
