I’ve spent the whole day at our first official robotics competition. One of our teams ended up as part of the winning alliance of teams that won the tournament. In a way, they got lucky. Their robot was good, but was only capable of scoring so much and mostly could do defense. The teams they were grouped with had excellent robots. Serendipitously, the other two teams in their group were both all-girls’ teams, which I think was partly why they chose to work with our team. So yay, girls!
All our teams did fairly well, and I think they’re inspired to continue on and do better next time. I was really proud of all of them. When it comes down to the wire, the girls really do put forth a great effort. We’re all learning a lot!
