Heavy beats were blasting from the stereo as students were busy boring holes through metal, programming the latest codes and piloting a large robot around the room.

Meeting nearly every day on the second floor of Loyola Hall, the robotics team is hard at work preparing new robots for upcoming events.

With the guidance of Mr. Andy Mazzolini and other Brophy faculty members, the students use power tools to craft new parts, constantly improving their robots.

The club is open to all Brophy/Xavier students who have an interest in technology, regardless of their experience.

“Robotics team creates mechanized miracles” is part of The Roundup’s 2010 multimedia project titled “The Soul of Brophy.” Click here to read more about this project.
