Brush Students Compete in FIRST Robotics Competition

Brush students Dominic Del Balso, Scott Karn and Hailey Hoyat put their scientific and collaborative skills to the test at the 13th Annual Buckeye Regional FIRST Robotics Competition, which took place March 20-22 at Cleveland State University’s Wolstein Center in downtown Cleveland.  This year’s competition was the culmination of six weeks of preparation by fifty-four teams representing high schools from across the state of Ohio and the nation.  The Brush team was no exception, as all three students spent hundreds of hours working together to construct and program their robot.  Standing at five-feet tall, the robot featured a mechanical arm which allowed it to pick up, hold and throw a large beach ball.  Each team’s robot competed in a game called Aerial Assist, which involved two teams of three robots each competing against each other in an enclosed area, with a truss suspended over the playing field.  The object of the game was to score as many goals as possible during a set amount of time. 


The annual competition is organized nationally by FIRST, which means For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology.  The program is designed to provide students the opportunity to improve their science and technology knowledge, build self-confidence and promote leadership and life skills.  The regional competition was sponsored by several Northeast Ohio companies and organizations, including NASA Glenn Research Center and Cleveland-based Rockwell Automation, which joined together to sponsor the Brush High School robotics team. 


Congratulations to Dominic Del Balso, Scott Karn and Hailey Hoyat for proudly representing the South Euclid-Lyndhurst Schools at the thirteenth Annual Buckeye Regional FIRST Robotics Competition.  To view footage and additional information regarding the Brush High School robotics team, click here.
