Geneva students compete in robotics competition at RIT

The Middle School Robotics Team from St. Francis-St. Stephen School in Geneva participated in the E3 Engineering and Technology Fair, which took place March 31 at Rochester Institute of Technology.

The goal of the annual fair is to increase interest in engineering and technology among middle-school students, who have the opportunity to collaborate with others, experiment and explore the field of engineering.

The fair features student design contests on engineering projects and demonstrations from engineering professionals, as well as a robotics competition.

Working in teams of two, St. Francis-St. Stephen students Lucas Yunits, Isabella Andrade, Olivia Tapscott, Jack Validzic, Wyatt DeCann and Matt Merkley spent a month building and programming three Lego robots capable of maneuvering around a maze.

During the competition, each team was called forward to test its program by sending the robot through the maze. The team of Lucas Yunits and Wyatt DeCann placed fourth in this competition.
