The Buchanan High School robotics team, Buchanan Bird Brains, invited the public to an open house demonstration in the school’s multi-purpose room on Feb. 21. The team unveiled its 12th robot, DOC XII and explained this year’s challenge set by FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition.
FIRST Stronghold requires robotics teams to form two alliances of three teams each. The teams must breach their opponents’ defenses and capture their tower by firing foam balls at it and surrounding or scaling the tower using rungs.
