BEVERLY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio)— Waring School in Beverly has one of the top high school robotics teams in the world, and now that they're all back in person together, they have their eyes on becoming the best.
The Waring School Wolfpack robotics team placed fifth in an international high school robotics competition last year. Now that the team is all in person together again, they're hoping to take home first place at the next competition. WBZ's Carl Stevens (@CarlWBZ) spoke with three members of the team.
"Last year was really frustrating because we were all divided but we were still able to get a lot of work done," Owen Cooper, an 11th grader on the team said. "We're hoping to be even better this year and get to work with everyone on our team."
Team member Olive Sauder said she was excited for the season and to have everyone on the team back working together.
"We were all able to be in the same room and work together but our team was separated [but] this year we get to combine our team and work with the people we thought we would be working with," Sauder said.
Waring School 11th grader Chris Douglas spoke about what it takes to build an international-award-winning robot.
"It takes thousands of hours and a lot of people working together really hard," Douglas said.
