VEX Robotics Team Looking for New Members

The VEX robotics program will be holding a recruitment event in the iRaiders robot lab at 6:30 on Thursday September 21st. The lab is located through the Melrose St. Marcoux Gym entrance of the High School. Students and parents in the 7th and 8th grade are welcome to come on down to learn about one of the strongest robotics programs in Melrose.

In years past this is the team that won the World Championships, and has won several state and New England championships at the middle school level. It is the perfect next step for students that were involved in the Lego League program or students that want to fuel their interest in STEM.

Meghan Cincotta and Chloe Melville both came through this program and ultimately went on lead the high school team as captains in both their Junior and Senior years. Both students are now enrolled in college engineering programs in the greater Boston area.
