Robotics Team Touts Successful Season

The Center Moriches High School robotics team, Infernobotix, had a successful season, ranking third at the Finger Lakes Regional in Rochester, and first out of the teams from Long Island. Prior to that competition, Infernobotix ranked 10th at the South Florida Regional and won the Autonomous Award. The Autonomous Award recognizes the team with the greatest pre-programmed instructions for the driverless period in the first 15 seconds of the match.

This year, the team’s robot had to be designed to shoot 14-inch foam rings into a goal placed seven feet in the air. The team worked together to design the robot with sensors and cameras to be able to shoot from any position with high accuracy. At each competition that Infernobotix participated in, the team stood out for its high accuracy and the wide range of positions the robot was able to score from.

The team’s seniors include President Spencer Buff, President Brendan Connelly, Vice President Jordan Jastrzebski, Secretary Lucas Dias, Nicholas Lyons and Robert Fahie.

A group of students interact with STEM stations thumbnail256805

Clayton Huey Elementary School students visited Center Moriches High School to collaborate with the Science Honor Society for STEM Day on March 26. Fourth and fifth graders rotated through several hands-on stations led by high school students, focusing on the fields of science, technology, engineering and math. Stations included Play-Doh making, building solar eclipse models, constructing kaleidoscopes and sound experiments. Additionally, the high school robotics team was on hand to demonstrate how its robot works – a station that seemed to be a crowd favorite.

“My favorite part about STEM Day was the robot and I liked how cool it was and I liked watching throw it into the targets,” said fifth grader Brayden M.

The annual event is an exciting learning opportunity for elementary and high school students alike.

““It was interesting, at least for me and I’m assuming the rest of the high schoolers, to take what they know and what they’re learning in school and find a way to translate that to elementary schoolers. It was just a great opportunity for everyone,” said senior and Science Honor Society member Alexander Babzien.
