Just like there seems to be a publication for every interest, there seems to be teams that represent special interests. Such is the case of Forest Immel of Castleton who traveled to Randolph for three years to be a member of the only robotics team in Vermont. Now there is a team closer to home. It’s made up of General Electric Co. employees and 21 high school students representing all but one school in Rutland County, according to the Rutland Herald. "I thought we could be called the IBOTS – Intelligence Beyond Ordinary Teenage Students," said Adam Wade, a sophomore at Proctor High School. The team will be entered in the national competition that is scheduled for mid-Feb. It will be Immel’s fourth time in a national competition. The robot built by the team must be programmed to operate autonomously for the first part of the competition. There are several categories in which teams can win prizes. So, can you say the wave of the future?
