Also at Nashoba Tech school committee's Feb. 5 meeting, members were:

-- Introduced to student of the month Rebecca Updyke of Townsend. A senior, Updyke is currently enrolled in the school's health program and intends to pursue a career in psychiatric nursing after graduation.

-- Learned that the school's robotics team came in 19th out of 54 at regional competitions held last year in Boston. For the 2013 competition to be held in March, the team has recruited 18 mostly new members and must design and build a robot that, among other things, must learn how to climb a wall.
