WAYNE, N.J. -- The Wayne Hills Patriots Robotics team recently took second place out of 20 teams in the New Jersey First Tech Challenge meet, known as Winter Meet III.

Held Dec. 6 in Columbus, the meet featured a competition to see which team could create a robot that could complete certain tasks, such as climbing, hanging, placing garbage in buckets and pushing debris into certain areas.

The rookie Patriots Robotics team accomplished all of these tasks, school officials said. They went through 27 qualifying matches and placed second prior to the semi-final and final matches.

Though they did not emerge as the victors, the team's total score of 207 was the highest of the day, school officials said. The team received several awards, including the Rockwell Collins Innovate Award for having an innovative robot that still completed the necessary tasks.

The Wayne Hills team will host a meet at their school Jan. 24, and they also are preparing for the NJIT competition in February.
