We had a lock-in at Shadowland in Gaithersburg on December 22, through to Saturday morning. We had great participation. Lots of alumni attended with their stories of college and beyond. Check out our web page with pictures .

Our FIRST Tech Challenge Team 6417 is moving on to the state finals. They won an invitation at the FTC Qualifying Tournament held at the Bullis school on January 14. They are starting a second season to prepare for the state finals at UMBC, February 17. The Game (Part 1, Part 2) was released in September.

We have two teams building rockets to meet the TARC 2018 requirements document. We design our rockets in OpenRocket. We had test flights in December and January, with some disappointing results. We are rebuilding and will have a practice launches in February, with qualification launches in March at the Virginia launch site.

Our Botball Team 160 is registered and starting development. We kicked off the program at the University of Maryland on January 27 and 28. We are meeting Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays until the regional tournament on April 7 at Annandale High School in Virginia.

We started work on our Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) project. The team is registered and reviewing the mission description. We can bring in two more committed members.
