Southold High School students gave a demonstration at Wednesday night’s school board meeting to show how their robot, Team RICE 870, competed at the annual robotics competition at Hofstra University.
Southold technology teacher Phil Caputo said his students started the project in January and had six weeks to complete it. Although the same kit was provided to each school, students had to create the robot on their own through “trial and error,” he said.
The school board also discussed creating a combined robotics team with Greenport High School, which currently doesn’t offer the program.
