Early tomorrow my son and I will be carpooling to Greensburg to participate in the FIRST Robotics Competition “Rebound Rumble” challenge. Our team built and programmed robot from a kit of loose parts.
The effort was a success, said Peter Jerz, 14, of Greensburg, who said he learned about teamwork while working on the online writing and documentation for the project.
“I was just a rookie who had to learn this stuff right off the bat, participate in building, testing, then tearing up, fixing and rebuilding a robot,” said Jerz, who plans to participate in next year’s competition. —
