What an amazing day!! Today was the day the boys have been working for the last 2 and a half months. Competition time! There were several of these competitions going on around the state. At this location there were 18 teams. The boys gave their presentation, met with judges, had 3 runs with their robot. The only score we knew before the closing ceremonies was their robot runs. They boys placed 4th! We were pretty excited about that.
So fast forward to the end of a long day and it was time for awards. We were getting pretty nervous because the boys were not getting called for any and we knew they had a good project. Well..... they ended up winning the WHOLE thing.....1st place GRAND CHAMPIONS!!! WOW! We knew they were good but that was a surprise!
Now they go on to state. They will compete against all the winners of this first competition. The boys have a really good project plan and I think they can win state! They are a good group of boys who have all worked really well together!
Here are some pictures from the day:
