The Roxbury Township basketball robot takes a shot at the basket during a recent FIRST Robotics Competition. Standing in back cheering in a red jumpsuit, his right arm raised, is Shahram Dabiri, the Roxbury team coach and mentor. The team's robot made two baskets in two attempts. This is Roxbury's first year in the robot competition. While the team is not advancing to compete in the world championship, the rookie, seven-man team assembled the robot in six months. Most teams have 30 to 40 members. Dabiri is also the DoD Ordnance Technology Consortium Technology Manager at Picatinny Arsenal.
