MHS Robotics Team 555 Kicks Off Season
Thursday, January 11, 2018
Montclair High School’s Robotics Team 555 won the award for Best Robot Design and came in 10th out of 30 teams at its third meet of the season at Livingston High School in December.
Next up for the team is the FRC Robotics season, with bigger, 100 lb.-plus robots. A Kick Off event was held in the auditorium of the South Fullerton main branch of the Montclair Public Library. The Kick Off begins a 6-week build season, where the team designs and builds its robot after school in the shop Monday through Thursday, and on Saturdays for 5 or 6 hours as well.
Team 555 will participate in two intense FRC competitions, the first at Mt. Olive High School in Flanders, on March 10 and 11 and the second at Montgomery Township High School in Skillman on March 24 and 25.
