Clarkson University And Local High Schools To Unveil Robot Saturday

High school students from Colton-Pierrepont, Massena, Potsdam and Salmon River central schools, as well as Clarkson University students and faculty combined to form the team named “Division by Zero,” to produce the robot named “Undefined” for the 2001 FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). The robot is seen pulling Bradley Tarbell, a Clarkson University freshman computer science major, up the ramp to theoretically balance the ramp to get points in the competition. Shown from left to right are John Croasdaile, a physics teacher from Massena High School, Samantha McCarthy, a senior from Massena High School, Kelly Ford, a Clarkson University senior mechanical engineering student; and Juan Valentin II, a Clarkson University senior mechanical engineering student. FIRST is supported by SPEED (Student Projects for Engineering and Design), sponsored by Corning, General Electric, Kodak and Alcoa.
