Robots take over career academy atrium

In the middle of the atrium at the Northwest Georgia College and Career Academy, with a large group of high school students looking on, a machine that was almost 5 feet tall lifted red totes and stacked them before trying to precariously place a recycling can on top.

The machine’s exposed gears and wires whirred and buzzed.

This robotics demonstration was presented Friday afternoon by Kennesaw-based Kell Robotics, a team of high school students that competes yearly in competitions organized by For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST), an international youth organization focusing on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) competitions.

Kell Robotics was invited to demonstrate their robots by career academy administrators in hopes of inspiring career academy students to join a competitive robotics team that will begin to meet in the upcoming weeks. Read More
