Berkshire Bank grand opening, ribbon cutting

Berkshire Bank held the Grand Opening of their new branch on Nov-20-2014. WHS Team 4048, Redshift, was one of four local recipients of a $2500 grant from the Berkshire Bank Foundation. Our 2014 FRC robot Scorpio cut the ceremonial ribbon.

Scorpio was retrofitted with a garden hedge shear activated by a pneumatic cylinder. It can be seen in the picture below (orange handles). It’s note actually floating in space; it’s mounted to a clear piece of transparent Lexan.

Thanks to Berkshire Bank for their gracious support!
