FTC teams move ahead to Championship events

Congratulations to FSR’s two FTC teams! So far, both have done very well this season.

Our rookie team, Rhyme Know Reason, has earned two robotics awards over the past two weeks. On November 22, in Oxford, PA, they earned the Motivate Award. Last Saturday November 29, in Ambler, PA, they earned the Think Award for their excellent engineering notebook. With this award they earned the opportunity to compete at the PA State FTC Championship in late February. In addition, they will also be competing at the Diamond State Championship in Dover, DE, next January 31.

Their team, with lead mentor Dawn Dockter and several other mentors, has built a strong foundation of teamwork and engineering exploration.

Also at the Oxford event, our veteran FTC team, MOE 365, was Alliance captain for the winning alliance and they were awarded the Connect Award.

At the Ambler event,  MOE earned the Inspire Award, (top award) and was on the winning alliance of teams (with a team from Delaware’s Archmere Academy) in on-field competition. They have also earned a championship berth in Pennsylvania and in Delaware.

We wish them all the best as they move forward to FTC’s 2014 championship events.
