The first Saturday of the month, they get their assignment. The team of 14 high school kids, power-tool wielding and tinkering with parts such as gears, motors and pulleys, not to mention the cool plastic pieces they generate in the 3D printer they won as a prize, will get their assignment for the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), a national competition held locally at Northeastern University. Then, the 4H A.L.A.R.M. (A Lot of Amazing Robot Makers) 2079 Robotics team will go back to its rented space at the old Thomson Press Building on Dean Ave.
Medway and Millis will be venturing into an unknown territory this winter as the two towns will get together and field a co-op gymnastics team with a Medway native at the helm of the first year program. Breanna Vacca, a 2010 graduate from Medway High School, was in the right place at the right time to lead the squad in their first season.
