On January 12, the NOVA-sponsored FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) OlyBot Robotics Team placed an amazing 10th place out of 36 teams at the Regional FIRST Robotics Competition at St. Martins University. This event featured mostly high school teams, including teams from the greater Olympia, Vancouver, and South Seattle area.
The OlyBot Robotics Team of six includes four NOVA 7th graders and was one of two teams composed exclusively of middle school students. In addition to a fantastic placement, the team also won the Judges Award, given to a team that shows the most gracious professionalism and passion for learning and participating. What an honor!
