Eight members from Team Bob at Prospect Mountain High School brought Bob the Robot to visit members of the Alton Rotary Club. In addition to building their robot in 6 weeks last January, the Team Bob members took Bob to competitions and in the course of the year gained practical technical knowledge. The Prospect Mountain team was recognized for spirit and professional awards in helping other teams at their competitions. On November 11, 2017, one thousand  students and their advisers representing 28 schools from across New England will assemble for an off-season robotics event at Prospect Mountain High School. The Team Bob students welcome community support with both financial donations and encouragement. The high school cafeteria at Prospect Mountain will be transformed into a pit area for the competing team for this day-long event. All of the students are assigned different responsibilities to insure that their performance is highly effective.
