When our WA robotics teams are not busy preparing for a competition, they invest their time serving our community. Their demonstrations foster a greater understanding and interest in STEM and robotics for all age levels. Therefore, they welcomed the opportunity to present at Broward College's iCan STEM Symposium on Friday, November 1. This gathering focused on creating interest and excitement about teaching science and technology in Broward County schools. As a result, students and teachers from schools in Broward County attended. The high school robotics team presented FIRST Robotics at the Symposium and demonstrated the high school robot, and Mrs....

The high school robotics team, FRC Team 744 Shark Attack, competed on Saturday at Mission Mayhem at the Dillard High School. This competition had some historic firsts for the team. For example, Shark Attack fielded two distinctly different robots for the first time. In fact, the second robot ran for the first time at 10:00 p.m. the night before the competition. The team has never attempted an effort quite like it. Moreover, Shark Attack had three drivers, a drive coach, and a drive technician for this competition. They even had a human player in new roles piloting the robots. In addition,...

The high school robotics team, Shark Attack FRC Team 744, invites you to their preseason competition this Saturday.

When our WA robotics team is not busy preparing for a competition, they invest their time serving their STEM community. Evidence from this year shows their legislative and community outreach continues to grow. We continue to celebrate their successful trip to the World Championship, coming home with the Innovation in Control award. However, we would like to also congratulate the team for their efforts beyond building and competing with robots. Beginning with their work in our community, the team made dozens of demonstrations, taught classes, and hosted clinics. Their devoted time fostered a greater understanding and interest in STEM and robotics...
