The AST robotics team has been working overtime to prepare for their first VEX competition. On Sunday October 21 they got on a bus to go to Taoyuan Arena for the Taiwan International Robotics Tournament.
They were nervous, excited and ready to learn.
Their hard work paid off. ASTonishing Team A was awarded the Excellence award, which is the highest honor of the tournament. They performed very well on the field and were fantastic during the engineering notebook interview. ASTonishing Team B brought home the Design award, this is given to the team with a very organized and professional approach to the design process, and they did very well in the interview.
Both teams had already planned to go to the VEX competition at Taipei American School on November 30 - December 1. With these awards they qualify for the Asian VEX Championship in Macau, also November 30 - December 3.
I know they will continue to work hard to prepare for whichever tournament they choose to attend. Congratulations!
