What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

One year it was kick- ing a soccer ball into a goal, another year was shooting hoops with a basketball. This year however, the robots must be able to pick-up and throw a Frisbee through a window. This competition is entirely point- based but requires tons of strategy and focus. · • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Hellgate's aspiring business people get to shine both when running the school store at lunch and 10 minute break, and in regional and national competitions.
