SWW Robotics Team advances to FIRST semifinals

Posted on: March 21st, 2016 by Anastasia Miller

Our congratulations go out to the SWW Robotics Team for making it to the semi-finals in last weekend’s FIRST Robotics district competition! The team—which has more than a dozen members this year—showed creativity and grit in competing against 38 other teams, many with much more experience and equipment.

Special thanks to faculty advisers Sydney Bergman and Khalif Muhammad, volunteers Jeff Cadman and Zachary Kahn from Booz Allen, and Phil Loprieoto from GWU for helping the team roll over all kinds of obstacles (planned and unplanned) to such a great result.

Next weekend they’ll be at it again in Edgewater, Maryland. Come on out and cheer them on!

And check out a great panoramic pic of the competition floor (best on a big monitor).
