Open House for New College’s Robotics Team

New College Institute extends a special invitation to the public and media to attend NCI’s Robotics Team 1262 Open House February 21 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. The team is comprised of high school students from Martinsville and Henry County. Team members will facilitate a live demonstration of their current competition robot and share a preview of 2019 opportunities.

“I’m looking forward to spreading the word about engineering through our Open House,” said team member James Li.

FIRST robotics competitions include the excitement of sport and the rigor of science. Under strict guidelines and the guidance of local volunteer mentors, including parents, engineers, teachers, and NCI staff the team of students will build and program a robot to perform challenging tasks against a field of competitors from across the state and country. The team members learn and apply valuable STEM and life skills.

The Open House will take place at NCI’s Fayette Lab at 31 Fayette Street in Martinsville. To RSVP, please contact Brian Pace at (276)403–5618 or
