FARMINGDALE — Hall-Dale High School’s REM Delta Prime Robotics Team worked with two other teams, The Anomaly from Sanford and Riot Crew from South Portland, to place second at the local off-season event Sept. 19 at Messalonskee High School in Oakland.

Delta Prime is a member of FIRST Robotics Competition, an international high school robotics competition that gives students real-world engineering experience, according to a news release from Delta Prime. Teams are challenged to work together, building and programming a robot while handling finances, public relations, community service and the promotion of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). The students work with professional mentors to design something fun and gain real-world experience in engineering, business, programming, public relations and many other skills.

Mainely Spirit is a FIRST event hosted by the Messalonskee robotics team, Infinite Loop. 21 teams from across New England competed in an environment of gracious professionalism and “coopertition,” principles that FIRST exemplifies. FIRST robotics teams demonstrate mutual support and kindness and help even those with whom they are competing.
