West Branch incoming junior Will Martin operates the CyBears robotic team’s new robot July 13 while West Branch incoming senior Tara Hoffman watches. The CyBears robotic team built the robot over the course of three days under the direction of Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics teacher Matt Cain.
