Robotics Team Reaches Semi-Final Round and Takes Imagery Award

The Park Robotics Team (a.k.a. Team 1719 The Umbrella Corporation) advanced to the semi-final round of the Chesapeake Regional FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition. The event, the premier engineering challenge for high school students, took place March 9 and 10. This year’s specific challenge, “Rebound Rumble,” involved creating a robot to accurately shoot basketballs into hoops and balance on a see-saw. In addition to advancing to the semi-finals (Park Robotics’ highest finish ever), the team was honored with the Imagery Award, celebrating “attractiveness in engineering and outstanding visual aesthetic integration of machine and team appearance.” Congratulations to Team 1719! The team is currently making plans to attend a second regional competition at the DC Convention Center March 29-31. The Park community is invited to attend and support the team that Friday and Saturday. Click here to see a video from the March 9,10 competition.
