  • UCVTS Robotics Club Places First at Regional FRC Competition!

    by
    The Robotics Club from Union County Vocational Technical Schools (UCVTS) in Scotch Plains, NJ placed first at the Regional FRC FIRST Robotics competition held recently at Clifton High school. Team 1257, “Parallel Universe” as they are known has been competing for ten years overall and the past four under the stewardship of lead mentor Ms. Jacqueline Gerstein (Pictured standing front row far left). During the two day competition each robot is teamed with two others to form an alliance to battle against another alliance of three competitors.  After the preliminary rounds, finalist teams are chosen in an elimination format where strategizing and teamwork among the three robots is the key to winning. Throughout the weekend, Team 1257 was able to overcome setbacks including having to replace their robotic arms which were lost in one of the early rounds. They were able to persevere and hit their stride in the final rounds. As Ms. Gerstein noted, “No matter what the outcome, I am very proud of this team, the way they worked together and cooperated on the build and execution of the robot. The fact that we were on the winning alliance is truly wonderful, I couldn’t be more happy for the kids”.  There is one more round of district competitions and then hopefully onto the regional championships.
