Our all-girls robotics team, Rampunzel, was recently awarded the Connect Award at the FIRST Technology Challenge ‘Relic Recovery’ Competition!
The Connect Award is given to the team that most connects with their local science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) community. A true FIRST team is more than a sum of its parts, and recognizes that engaging their local STEM community plays an essential part in their success. The recipient of this award is recognized for helping the community understand FIRST, the FIRST Technology Challenge, and the team itself. The team that wins the Connect Award aggressively seeks and recruits engineers, and explores the opportunities available in the world of engineering, science and technology. This team has a clear business or strategic plan and has identified steps to achieve their goals.
