We are the Positronic Panthers, a robotics team based in Strath Haven High School in Wallingford, Pennsylvania. The team is made up of about thirty students between the ages of fourteen and eighteen who participate dedicate themselves in the First Robotics Competition. After receiving a new competition objective, we immediately began the process of creating our robot. The members of Team 486 bring diverse skills and ideas to the brainstorming process, which starts at the beginning of each build season. Students dedicate hours of their time working is separate divisions over six weeks.
