Long Beach Poly Robotics Club participated in an off-season competition called Fall Classic and placed first in the competition.

The Fall Classic is hosted by a company yearly with the objective of having games created for schools to compete with their designed robot.

The LBP Robotics Club completely redesigned their robot within 4 weeks.

Although this is their second year as a rookie team they’ve done well with the club and competitions. There are currently 30-35 members active in the club.

Senior Marine Alais has been part of the club for two years now and said she was recruited by Theana Guttieri, a now graduated Poly student, when Guttieri stopped by the science classes to discuss about recruitment, Alais said it sounded interesting and joined. Alais experience with competitions makes her feel like it’s “a really big community”, with most schools helping each other out and working together.

The club not only has their focus on competitions but also in community outreach, working on projects, and mentoring middle school students.

An upcoming fundraiser  for the club will be taking place December 15 at Applebee’s.

The club is also hoping to create a Vex team and have an upcoming competition taking place during the beginning of January.
