  The Aces High

Robotics Team

Came to a Recent Meeting

Ron Horn and students David Fitzgerald and Tyler Nardi gave the presentation about The Suffield-Windsor Locks joint robotics team, known as Aces High or Team 176. Many students who join the team have no experience but gain skills over time. Aces High introduces science and technology that positively changes a student’s life as they design and build robots for yearly competitions. Aces High has won the state championship three years in row and has placed in the top five teams in national competitions. In 1999, the team won a world championship.
