SPECIAL TO THE VINDICATOR
Members and advisers of Austintown Fitch Robotics Team visited Rotary Club of Austintown during a recent meeting. Eileen Yantes and Wesley Pringle demonstrated the 2013 robot, a Frisbee-tossing machine. It won awards at various competitions. The group had 27 participants this year. They have six weeks to build their entry. Worldwide there are 2,143 teams and the Austintown team shares and cooperates with teams from Warren, Girard and Canfield. The school provides a work space but the teams must raise funds to build the units.
