Rhode Warriors Ready to Compete



Students from the Middletown’s robotics team Rhode Warriors built a robot in just six weeks, working after school with community mentors to design, construct and program their entry for the New England District FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Competition on March 8 and 9 in Groton, Conn. The 150-pound robot, displaying the Rhode Warriors’ shark logo, will face off against more than 30 teams from across the area, hoping for a berth at regionals.
