Silicon Valley Regional this year was simply put…AMAZING.
We were placed 14 out of 48 and at one point in the competition we actually placed fourth. Because we have an amazing driver as well as human player we were chosen as a member in one of the top alliances. We were so excited because it’s been about four years since we were chosen for such a prestigious position. Not only that but we beat some of the top teams and made it to the FINAL ROUND!!!!!!! Although we did not win the final round we are so happy to have made it so high in the competitions. WOW.
After finals we had pretty much thought that the second place runner up was the only award that we were going to get.
BUT boy were we wrong! We won the ENGINEERING INSPIRATION AWARD which is the second highest award at a FIRST competition. We won it because of our endless outreach to the greater community and younger girls. This means  we get to go to championships in ATLANTA. =)
The entire team can be easily labeled as speechless because our hard earned work has been awarded. GO SPACE COOKIES!!!!!

  1. I'm actually pretty surprised you guys didn't win that final round.. as smart as the team is and how much talent surrounds you all, I would've hoped for 1st place.

    The engineering inspiration award is still something though. Doing community work has always been on my list and will continue to be.

    And oh wow the championships are in Atlanta, that's where I am living right now. I would love to come and watch if it's convinient, that would be so much fun! Good luck to all of you 🙂

  3. I’m directing the Sally Ride Science Camp for girls at Stanford July 5-15 that includes a robotics class. These are girls going into 8th and 9th grade. Is there any way we could meet any of you and see what you do? I think it was members of your team we met last year at Tech Shop in Menlo Park – very inspirational!

  4. Its a great idea Nancy…i think it would be unforgetable for the students..and theyd learn a lot..

  5. Congrats on the engineering inspiration award and for the great work your team has been doing for the community. Good luck in Atlanta!

  7. This is really a great new. I really appreciate your attempt and your earnest endeavor to ensure a better performance. It is really heart breaking that you guys have managed to secure 4th position but ultimately succumbed to the rising pressure and grabbed at last 14th position. However, taking in mind of your effort, I can say that in future, you will be able to make a significance difference in coming year. Lets hope for the best.


  8. Fourth place is outstanding and I'm just glad to hear you guys were chosen to come out and compete and making it to the final round was exciting for us all! Especially taking the Engineering Inspiration Award…damn good to see it happen!
