Roboitcs Competition

The kids did a great job Saturday at the GEAR robotics competition. Even though we had very little time to practice and prepare they adapted on the fly and made adjustments in order to enter the semi-finals round of competition. We were the only Edgewood middle school to make it into the top 8. However, due to some techinical difficulty we did not advance to the final round. We did receive the Programming award in the end however, and the kids did an amazing job overall.
