AMBASSADORS ADVANCE TO ROBOTICS SUPER-REGIONAL

March 07, 2017
By BCS

Bethesda Christian School’s FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) robotics team has qualified for the South Super-Regional Championship, to be held March 23-25 at The Classic Center in Athens, Georgia.

The team's advance to the South Super-Regional will be its third appearance in four years. Faculty sponsor Una Davis stated that the squad “double-qualified” for the Super-Regional, placing second for the Inspire Award and winning the Think Award at the FTC North Texas Regional Championship on February 25.

The Inspire Award, the highest honor given at a meet, recognizes a team that embodies the spirit of the FTC program. The Inspire Award winner is a top contender for many other judged awards and exhibits Gracious Professionalism, one of the FIRST program’s highest values.

The Think Award is given to a team for the quality of its engineering notebook. Judges recognize the winning squad for its documentation of the robot design process.

Members of the Ambassador Robotics team are Noah Brown, Ben Davis, Mark Eagan, Rachel Gruenbaum and Brandon Watanabe. The Ambassadors will be one of 72 teams in 11 states competing at the South Super-Regional Championship.
