I am pleased to advise that under difficult, socially-distanced circumstances, our US Robotics team, 2858, produced an excellent Engineering Journal and submitted videos of our robot in action that allowed us to take 2nd place in the Gwinnett FTC League and win the Inspire Award. Here are pictures of the team (Kitty Fan is our team captain) with their robot and the trophies being added to our collection. – Mr. Callinan
- Team must submit an engineering portfolio. The engineering portfolio must include summary information about the robot design, information about the team, and a team plan. The entire engineering portfolio must be high quality, thoughtful, thorough, concise and well-organized.

If you need the links to the at-home or return request forms, please email Ms. Rorey: firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember that you should expect to wait 24 hours before you are approved by the school.
