Once again, ESM graduate student Lucas Passmore will be working with the Bradford County US First Robotics Team. Lucas has been working with the team since his senior year of high school.

The FIRST Competition is a national contest which immerses high school students in the exciting world of engineering. Over six short intense weeks, students and local volunteers work together to brainstorm, design, construct, and test their robot. The teams then compete in a spirited, no-holds-barred regional tournament complete with referees, time clocks and huge amounts of cheering.
