As a pre-season task, the team decided to create their own “Wafflebot,” which can produce waffles and will probably be doing so this week on the quad, Robotics Club President Josh Lappen said. 

The Robotics team will be competing in the Long Beach Regional of the international FIRST Robotics Competition beginning on Jan. 5 and continuing through of March.

The competition requires teams to build robots during a six-week time frame that can complete an assigned objective.  Last year, the competition required teams to build robots that were able to effectively shoot a basketball.
