Helping Youth Pursue Engineering and Robotics is what Quincy's robotics team named HYPER stands for. A record 7,000+ youth were doing just that this past weekend at Boston's FIRST Regional meet held at Boston University. This year's sporting event for young minds provided a thrilling competition that inspires young people to pursue careers as scientists and engineers and promotes a spirit of "gracious professionalism" that is too often lost in our focus on sports.
