Albany High robotics goes to Detroit;

Mark Cuban weighs in

ALBANY, N.Y. (May 3, 2018) – Members of the Albany High School robotics team and their robot Mark Cube-N competed in a world robotics championship in Detroit April 25-28.

 

And although their 3-7 finish wasn’t what the team hoped for, Shark Tank investor Mark Cuban got wind of his robot namesake and urged them via email to “keep it going.”

 

“Congrats on a great run. Once you taste the big time, it only motivates you to work harder!” Cuban said.

 

The Falcon robot was so named because one of its competition tasks was to pick up and move milk-crate like cubes.

 

Albany High’s robotics team earned a spot at the Detroit competition after taking first place at the 2018 New York Tech Valley Regional FIRST Robotics Team event in March.
