The Crawford County Career & Technical Center won’t field a team at this year’s annual RoboBOTS competition, but it will make its presence felt.
On March 30, 41 teams from 21 schools are set to clash with 15-pound robots doing battle in a round-robin tournament at Meadville Area Senior High School.
There’s no RoboBOTS team from the technical center’s precision machining program — but not because its students aren’t interested. They’re helping other high school teams iron out design issues as well as machining parts for other teams. It’s all they can do because the technical center’s students are in demand already by area manufacturers.
