Somehow we have designed, built and cheered our way through the last 3 months without a webpage update! I will take that to mean we were having too much fun! With the team growing from ±20 students last year to nearly 45 students this year we have really had to mix things up to get the best out of all of our students. Check out the build season weekly updates on the Multimedia page to see what was accomplished each week. Not too shabby!
We attended two competitions this year – WPI in Week 2 and Hartford in Week 5. The progression of the team from the first match in Week 2 to finishing off in the semifinals in Hartford was astounding. The mentors and parents could not have been more proud from every point of view – technically we improved the robot up until the very end, the team’s enthusiasm and energy was awesome and led to the team winning the Spirit Award in Hartford, the the maturity of the students is continuing to grow. It is great to see a team push to be as good as they can be and then see that not only are they learning about the robot and working together as a team but that they are great people too. It warms the heart.
With that said, we have several off-season events to look forward to (check out the calendar) to continue with FIRST Stronghold!
