From the Moorestown Sun, December 26, 2014:
With the popularity of the new movie Big Hero 6 by Disney’s Animation Studios, building robots and robotics might be the next big thing. However, robotics in schools and robotics teams have been around for awhile.
Moorestown Friends School’s robotics team started in 2007. Since then, it has been participating in competitions around the region.
This year, the MFS Hawks finished in first place out of 24 teams at the competitive New Jersey FIRST Tech Challenge Meet. They also were the winners of the PTC Design Award, the winning Alliance Team, and were nominated for the Innovate Award.
“We were pretty excited. We were working on the robot for a couple of months, and it was really nice to see all of our hard work pay off,” said Andrew Edzenga, a member of the Hawks robotics team.
