Congrats to the Robotics Team and Mr. Ferraro
After a grueling 8-weeks for our 14-member robotics team, we won! There were 24 Bay Area high schools that were grouped into alliances of three, so we share our win with Miramonte and Head Royce.
We also won awards for Engineering Professionalism and Engineering Journalism.
Click HERE for more photos of the event.
And thank you to those who came to cheer us on yesterday! We probably had the biggest (and definitely loudest) fan pool :)
