MONROE, Conn. -- Three Masuk High School robotics teams have blown the competition out of the water and are asking the community's help in sending students to the Super Bowl of robotics.
The Robotics Program at Masuk is dedicated to helping students learn and grow through robotics. The program currently has 11 high school and middle school teams, with more than 100 members. Three of these teams (two high school and one middle school) were finalists in the Southern New England Championships and have qualified to attend the VEX Robotics World Championships this week in Louisville, Kentucky.
The championships will be held April 19-22, and the cost for the trip is expected to be in excess of $20,000. A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help bring in donations to pay for the trip.
