2nd Annual Cultural Heritage Night at Maple Dale
Robotics, Tech Challenges and FIRST LEGO League Info
Dear Sycamore families,
The Sycamore High School Aves Ablaze robotics team hosted its inaugural FIRST Tech Challenge scrimmage this past Sunday, Jan. 14, with eight teams. Thank you to everyone at the district level and at the high school for their support of the event and the team.
In addition to Aves Ablaze, three additional teams had Sycamore students.
These three teams are:
- Innov8 with students from Sycamore JH
- Powerstackers with students from Sycamore HS
The teams will be competing in official qualifying tournaments the next two Saturdays at Van Wert and Walnut Hills. Check out the schedule at http://ispacestem.org/first-tech-challenge-qualifying-tournaments/ and go check them out.
The remaining teams at the scrimmage represented schools from throughout Cincinnati including St. Xavier and Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy.
Here is a link to the Dropbox folder where I've put the photos I took.
Also coming up is the FIRST LEGO League district qualifier on Sat., Jan. 20 where four teams (Brick Girls, Cyb3rstorms, Legion of Legos, and Lego Legends) with Sycamore students will be competing at iSpace in Sharonville for the opportunity to advance to states. You can watch them compete anytime between 1:00 and 4:30 p.m.
