Last Day!!!

This is our pre-bag photo of the 2603 Highland Robotics robot last night at 8:55 pm. Mr. Matheou and 8 students stayed until the end. After this photo, all that was left was to wrestle the robot into the bag! Thanks to all of the team members who worked double overtime the last 4 days to finish the robot. Your dedication is evident in the quality of the robot you built.

A special thanks to Mr. Matheou and the Matheou family from the team and parents. It takes a special teacher to inspire students, and a special family to tolerate 80 hour work weeks during build season.

Next stop, Pittsburgh!
