LC Cyber Crusaders hosted a FIRST Robotics camp at the 4H Center in Skippack. The camp was a sellout as they reached maximum capacity with the six student leaders: Zack Monaghan '18 (Mater Dei), Casey Hannings '18 (Corpus Christi), Zack Wallace '17 (Mater Dei), Jake Gadaleta '17 (Mater Dei), Sarah McKenzie '16 (Corpus Christi) and Marissa DiGregorio '18 (Mater Dei).

Last week our Robotics Team joined several other local high schools at the Comcast Center in Philadelphia to show visitors how the robots they built, with the help of Comcast employee/volunteers, performed in competition.

Great job again LC Robotics Team!
