Albany Falcons fly to Texas for robotics competition

This week’s stem 13 report heads to Houston, Texas for a worldwide Robotics Competition and one of the teams making the trip is from Albany High School.

The Falcons and their creation called Rein are ready to show off their moves.

Rein is programmed to collect balls and toss them into a net that stands eight feet tall.

Some parents volunteered to drive the robot to Houston in their pickup truck. Thanks to community donations and a large gift from National Grid, the team got to fly to Texas.

Be sure to watch the video above to see the robot in action and here from the team about their project.
