North Catholic, Mars robotics teams show off their creations

The Southern Butler County Business Association hosted a Robotics Night on Thursday evening at South College in Cranberry Township, featuring robotics teams from North Catholic High School and Mars Area High School.

Students from the North Catholic and Mars robotics teams displayed robots they designed and programmed. Demonstrations of navigation and manipulation followed.

In addition to showcasing the talents of the two school’s robotics teams, the event gave participants the chance to network with professionals in the robotics and S.T.E.M. industries.
