We will have an Open House recruiting event on Saturday, September 10, 1:00 to 4:00 pm, at the Rockville Science Center storefront, 36C Maryland Ave. We will repeat it on Wednesday, September 14, 7:00 to 9:00pm. We hope to recruit twelve new high school students for our engineering teams. If interested, email info@post1010.org.

Our FIRST Tech Challenge Team 6417, the Blu Cru, had a great year in 2021/2022. We created a robot following the 2021 game rules (Part 1, Part 2). We did well in the qualifying tournaments, ranked one of the top teams in the regional championship in Hampton VA, and went on to the Worlds Championship in Houston TX.

We had two teams in The American Rocketry Challenge for 2022. We designed, built, and flew rockets to the TARC 2022 rules. One team was invited to the top 100 team national finals in May. We also had a team in the NASA Student Launch Initiative for 2022. We are planning to participate in both programs in 2023.

Our Botball Team 160 competed in the Botball 2022 program. In 2022, we built and tested our autonomous robots following the 2022 rules. We competed in the regional and then the Global conference in Norman Oklahoma. We are planning for Botball 2023.

In 2022, we registered in the Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS4STEM) competition. We built a drone to meet the challenge and scored high in the regional competition. We went to the national competition held at AirVenture Fly-In festival at Oshkosh WI in August 2022.
