Robots give their all in Emmaus

Fifty teams of robotics enthusiasts filled the cafeterias at Emmaus High School Feb. 15 and 16, all intent on seeing their robot creation in the winner’s circle.

Emmaus High School’s Steel Hornets Robotics team hosted the For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, or FIRST, Tech Challenge state qualifier robotics competition.

Led by EHS chemistry and robotics instructor John Bradley, Connor Mack, Rachel Tobey, Gabriel Black, Laura Klopchin, Ian Zakos and many other EHS students provided the support staff for the robotics competition.

Q. Who are the members of your family: parents, siblings and pets?

A. My family is composed of my mom and dad and our two chocolate labs, Buster and Bella.

Q. What do you most enjoy about being a senior at Emmaus High School?

A. I would say the thing I enjoy most about being a senior is the greater sense of independence from teachers at school. This is the first year where the majority of teachers start to treat students as adults rather than children and prepare them for life after high school.
