BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Florida Prep Robotics Team, ‘Improv Robotics’, recently placed in the top 10 of the 20 teams competing in the Space Coast Robotics Tournament.
This being only their second year of competition the achievement was celebrated by team members and team leader, Xifan Liu, as a major step forward in the development of robotics on the Florida Prep campus.
The spot did not come without dedication and hard work. Visit the robotics lab on any given Saturday and you’ll find members of the team building and discussing robots.
Through contacts made during previous events, the team has also garnered support from NASA Engineers and L3Harris who share their expertise, and in the case of L3Harris donated $1,200 to the fledgling team as community sponsorship.
Florida Prep conducts robotics clubs throughout the year for both middle and high school students, and several members of the young team competing in The Space Coast Robotics Tournament did so for the first time.
Given their strong start, they will be a team to watch as the season progresses.
