Fischer High School Engineering Students Take First Place in National Robotics Competition

Fischer High School Engineering III students Joseph R., Ari M., and Jason F. have been awarded first prize in the national Oak Ridge Institute for Science Education (ORISE) Competition. ORISE is a government run program focusing on STEM careers and technology. This year’s challenge was to design a robot to solve a real world problem. The team used a past Center for Innovation in Jewish Education project, a student attendance tracker, for the competition. Though this was a design-only competition, the team built their robot as a proof of concept. Each team member earned a fully programmable Cue Robot for their first place national win. Kol ha-kavod.
