Over the weekend the team attended the Southern New Hampshire District Event. At this event the team ranked 27th out of 37. Throughout the event we kept improving our robot and by our final match everything really started coming together and looking like a great robot. Unfortunately that wasn't early enough to be noticed by the other teams to be chosen to go into eliminations. We look forward to the Central Mass District Event in two weeks to show off all the new features we finally were able to make work.
The big news of the competition was that we won the District Chairman's Award!
The Chairman's Award is the most prestigious award in FIRST. It honors the team that best represents a model for other teams to emulate and best embodies the purpose and goals of FIRST. The Chairman's Award goes to the team that is deemed to have the most significant measurable impact with its partnerships among it's participants and community over a sustained period not just a single build season. The winner is able to demonstrate progress towards first mission of transforming our culture.
This is what the judges had to say:
This team has spread the message of FIRST locally and globally. They support their FLL teams and engage young women in STEM. They represent the ideals of FIRST by advocating for FIRST. Cover your ears because this team knows how to make it loud!
This award qualifies the team to compete at the New England District Championships at WPI. We are very excited for this opportunity and look forward to competing at the next level. We would like to thank all of our families and sponsors who helped make this possible.
