  1. We have 55 students on our team – a team and school record!
  2. Approximately 30% of our student members are women which ties a team record!
  3. We have formed a task group (led by Ray Tong ’16) attempting to mentor students on 15 new FRC teams in China!
  4. We have formed an exploratory group working on starting a FIRST Robotics Team in Haiti. This would be the first FIRST team in Haiti!
  5. We are hoping to build on last year’s legislative STEM initiative to foster FIRST robotics everywhere in Florida.
  6. We finished a record summer of classes, seminars, and clinics for robotics at WA. More than 30 robotics students were involved in our summer programs!
