Palisades robotics team recognized in Harrisburg


State Sen. Bob Mensch recognized members of Cybersonics Technology Team 103 from Palisades High School during their visit to Harrisburg.

The Cybersonics Technology Team 103, or Team 103, recently received the Gracious Professionalism Award and the Entrepreneurship Award during the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) World Championships in Detroit.

Team 103 is a nonprofit organization that inspires young people, their schools, and their communities to appreciate science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) education. The current Palisades High School Cybersonics Team has 32 team members and five parent mentors who support the team during the year with various activities, such as fundraisers and events; these mentors also help to run the business side of the team and construct and program the robot during the competition season.

“It is my pleasure to recognize and congratulate the Cybersonics Technology Team 103 and their mentors on their well-deserved awards and recognition,” Mensch said. “This is an incredible organization that enables students to learn more about STEAM education and helps them realize how it can enrich their lives. The students are obtaining experience and education that will gear them towards a job market that is vital to our economy.”
