Flagship 3140 Robotics Team was working on a new robot during its meeting Friday, Sept. 18, after school at Farragut High School.

“Ok so the new robot

we’re making is our [Public Relations] robot,” senior Ward Manneshmidt said. “It’ll be a new t-shirt cannon to replace our old one. We needed a new one because our old one was old and sort of wearing out. It wasn’t the best.

So we’re trying to remake it, make it better [and] just a bit more showy sort of.”

Its new PR [public relations] robot is projected to show at Farragut’s homecoming football game, Oct. 2, against Campbell County and the robotics team

is hoping it gives a flashy and exciting feel as it takes the field.
