Most people look forward to the holiday season or to a birthday. For me, it has always been robotics kickoff. The annual First Tech Challenge started earlier this month and robotics teams across the nation were given this year's challenge for the highly anticipated annual robotics competition. Brentwood's three teams are now hard at work engineering their way to complete different aspects of the challenge. Their first competition against other local schools will be in early December at Marlborough School. Team members are as excited as I am. They often say, "Robotics is fun!" and "I had no idea what robotics was, but now, I love it!" A new 8th grader, Rahul Y. '23, said, "Robotics let's me problem-solve while giving me experience working with a team." Here's to a great season. Updates on our progress will follow!
