It is going to be a busy two weeks

We have two weeks to get ready for the last event of our 2016 FRC season, FRC World Championships.  This will be the 7th event we have participated in since school started in August of 2015, making this the longest season on record.  In many ways, attending the FRC World Championships on April 27th will also be capstone to our most successful season by far.  The success this season is the result of the increased energy, effort and time our team has put into building students and community.  We can see the finish line, let’s finish with a sprint.
