Team ASTonishing-A had a fabulous week in Chicago, Illinois and Louisville, Kentucky, April 22-29.  Over 800 teams from about 40 countries were in Louisville to compete for the championship title.  For our rookie season, ASTonishing-A did a fantastic job and were gracious ambassadors for our school and for Taiwan.  The team was even on the local news, WAVE Channel 3 in Louisville. Eric Lu, Thomas Yen, Yuan Yuan Chan, Jason Liao, Shawn Chuang, Ruby and Max Shih met students, coaches and engineers from all over the world.  On TV they are shown taking a selfie with a team from Mexico. The VEX competition brings the best and brightest teams from around the world together for 4-non-stop, action-packed days. VEX is partnering with Google to increase the number of girls participating in STEM programs around the world, next year AST hopes to have an all-girl team in VEX or First Lego League competitions.

我們ASTonishing-A 隊全體師生於4月22日至29日在美國芝加哥和路易斯維爾度過了美妙的一周。這期間,來自全球約40個國家的800多支隊伍聚集在路易斯維爾爭奪VEX機器人大賽冠軍頭銜。首度參加如此高等級大賽的ASTonishing-A隊,每位同學都表現得非常出色,參賽期間他們還身兼AST和台灣的親切大使。這項比賽在路易斯維爾當地的WAVE 3新聞頻道也有報導。AST參賽的 Eric Lu,Thomas Yen,Yuan Yuan Chan,Jason Liao,Shawn Chuang,Ruby和Max Shih七位同學在比賽中會見了來自世界各地的學生,教練和工程師;在電視上還可看到他們與來自墨西哥的團隊一起拍照。 VEX比賽將來自世界各地最優秀和最聰明的團隊聚集在一起,進行了4場不間斷,動感十足的競賽。 VEX現正與Google合作增加世界各地參與STEM項目的女孩人數,AST希望明年在VEX或First Lego League的比賽中,也能推出一支全女子團隊參賽。
