Go Brixterz

      Currently, the Pierce Middle School Robotics team has 5 more practices before the May 2nd competition. We are working hard and focusing on getting an accurate measurement of the rectangle, an important component in the competition. For the next 5 days we will be meeting for 2 hours, so we can get the most work done in this time period. We are confident in our ability to finish.
Wish us luck.
