Middle and high school students from throughout Maine competed Saturday, Jan. 28, at a VEX Robotics Competition at Greely High School in Cumberland. Playing a game called Starstruck, two alliances composed of two teams each faced off on a 12-by-12-foot field, battling for points by transferring yellow “stars” and orange “cubes” to designated zones on their opponent’s side of a fence. Here an alliance of students from Greely High School and Yarmouth High School compete together. (Dan D’Ippolito / For The Forecaster)
