Prior to the
2011 sesason, Fairview had collaborated with McDowell High School.
By 2011 interest had grown to the point to justify a Fairview team.
Romich Foundation takes pride in being part of the initial financial
support for this program.
observation of the Fairview robotics experience, Romich Foundation
suggested to Northwestern High School in West Salem (Wayne County),
OH that a robotics program would complement the strong STEM (Science,
Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) curriculum that had been
built there over recent years. In the fall of 2011, the Northwestern
High School RoboHuskies program was launched with participation
in the FIRST
Tech Challenge (FTC).
On March 23,
2012, during the Buckeye Regional FIRST
Robitics Competition (FRC) in Cleveland, the RoboHuskies
team members visited and enjoyed an evening of interaction with
the Fairview team.
