Our News

We will have a lock-in at Shadowland in Gaithersburg on December 21, through to Saturday morning. We had great participation. Lots of alumni attended with their stories of college and beyond. Check out our web page for planning.

Our FIRST Tech Challenge Team 6417 is getting ready to start the 2018/2019 program. We need to get our robot scoring for a tournment on December 9 at Walt Whitman HS. The game detail was released September 8.

We will have three teams building rockets to meet the TARC 2019 Requirements. In May, we had two teams invited to the National championship. We were a little off the mark with the rocket flights, but did great with our presentation, coming in third. Our next test launch is November 17.

Our Botball Team 160 had great plans for the Global Conference on Educational Robotic at Indian Wells CA, July 24-30. We lost some close rounds and had to learn some difficult lessons. We're planning for the 2019 season. We need to replace our leadership - many went off to college.

We just finished our Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) project for 2018. We scored high in the regional competition and were invited to the national competition in Muncie IN, August 18. We did great at the national competition, but crashed towards the end and were not able to finish. We need to rebuild for the 2019 challenge.
