After six weeks of planning, programming, building and strategizing the ASRSD's robot, Andromeda2 is ready to compete.

If you've ever wondered what happens when two teams of 120-pound remote-controlled robots go head to head in a fast paced game of skill and strategy now is your chance!

Ayer Shirley's team will be participating in the Granite State FIRST Robotics District event Feb. 27-28 at South Nashua High School and at the North Shore District Competition at Reading High School on March 7-8. These events are free and open to the public.

Come cheer for the team as they participate in "Recycle Rush" presented by FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). Founded by Segway inventor Dean Kamen, FIRST gives students a real-world engineering experience while encouraging collaboration and sportsmanship.
