Michael Laposata of the North End, a sophomore member of the Boston College High School’s FIRST* Robotics team, traveled to Nashua , NH on March 1 to compete in the Granite State District event against 38 other New England Robotics teams. The BC High team named their Robot FRC 3958, ‘Schrodinger’s Cat.’

Laposata and his team mates spent nearly 6 weeks designing and building the Cat. After a day of fierce battle, team spirit and camaraderie, Team 3958 was overjoyed when the judges announced that the BC High team won  the Imagery Award. This award is selected by the judges for attractiveness in engineering and outstanding visual aesthetic integration from the machine to team appearance.
