JNS.org – Team 1690 Orbit, the robotics team from the ORT Binyamina High School in northern Israel, has made it to the finals of the 2015 FIRST international robotics competition for high school students.

In a preliminary round held in Maryland, the ORT students’ robot, Rafiki, beat creations by 58 other teams from all over the world. Team 1690 Orbit was also awarded the Delphi Excellence in Engineering Award, which “celebrates an elegant and advantageous machine feature,” for the planning of the robot’s mechanical systems and for Rafiki’s excellent performance in the competition.

The championship round is scheduled to take place April 22-25 in St. Louis, Mo. The city of Binyamina plans to celebrate the young engineers’ achievement during this week’s Passover festivities.
