It was an early rise for our West Sound Robotics Club last Saturday!  Our group arrived at King’s Schools Campus in Shoreline at 9:30 a.m. for the First Tech Challenge regional competition on November 2.  WSA is only one of two Kitsap Peninsula teams that are participating in the First Tech Challenge for 2019-2020.

After a rough start, losing our first match by one point, we came back strong and achieved second place overall in the Babbage League event.  Team captains Aidan Phelan and Emma Longworth were pleased with the result and look forward to our next competition on December 8.  To prepare our team robot for the next competition, our Hawks will meet again with our neighboring team the Safire Phoenix Girl Scouts team from Bremerton to test new features and strategies.
