State Champs!

Charger Robotics (including my Uber-geek son) won the FIRST Robotics Wisconsin Regional competition on Saturday. They will compete at the national championship in Atlanta on April 12-14.

Sad, but I had to go to Fond du lac to find a news report on the championship held in Milwaukee.
The Fondy Fire Robotics Team and its partners on Saturday won the Milwaukee FIRST regional robotics competition at the U.S. Cellular Arena in Milwaukee.

Team partners included Prior Lake, Minn., High School and Sussex Hamilton High School near Milwaukee.

The FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) program is designed to encourage interest in science and technology for students. The three-day competition featured 52 teams from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan.

I'll be lurking around S-H HS over the coming weekend for another tournament.

Neat accomplishment!

Can they program Congress to just go home and shut up?

Good luck with your event in Sussex.

"Can they program Congress to just go home and shut up?"
These kids are really good, but you're asking way too much.
