Robotics Team Places 3rd and Wins “Think Award” at World Championship

Congratulations to our Robotics Team for a fabulous performance at the FTC Robotics World Championship in Atlanta April 15-17!

Our team’s alliance placed 3rd overall in the world championship. Teams compete against one another in groups of three, and each group of three is referred to as an “alliance”.

The Conserve School Steelers also received the Think Award, an award given to only one team in the international competition.

Here is the explanation of the Think Award from the FTC website:

This award is given to the team that best reflects the “journey” the team took as they experienced the engineering design process during the build season. The Engineering Notebook is the key reference for judges to help identify the most deserving team. The team’s Engineering Notebook should focus on the design and build stage of the team’s robot. Journal entries of interest to judges for this award will include those describing the steps, brainstorms, designs, re-designs, successes, and those ‘interesting moments’ when things weren’t going as planned. A team will not be a candidate for this award if they have not completed the section of the Engineering Notebook describing the team’s experience.

Read the post-championship press release to see the Steelers listed among other winners.

Way to go Robotics team members, Conserve School students Jaclyn, Megan, Teagan, William, Xaxira, Andy, Cesar, Ben, Gabe, Angie, Casey, Mariah, Begench, and coach Robert Eady, Conserve School Math and Art Teacher!

Photos will be posted soon.
