May 25, 2016
Congratulations to Orange High School’s “The Flying Circuits” Robotics Team on its outstanding showing at the recent state competition in May, with a fourth place finish at the Ohio State Championships. This marked the team's first appearance at States ever.
The team created "Hoff 9000," a robot that can grab, maneuver, drop, throw, and compete in a series of challenges including obstacle courses and maneuverability. Members noted their achievements and successes in the various STEM areas as a direct result of the program.
