And We’re Off!

Team 116 burst out of the starting gate and wasted no time in joining the rest of our fellow FRC teams at the Northern Virginia CHS District Championship today as we set up shop.

After almost seven weeks of planning, designing, and fabrication, we are proud to showcase our latest Angry Nerd. Thanks to the ingenuity of our team members and the fantastic support of our mentors, we weathered the worst weather to complete our robot.

Tomorrow, Epsilon Delta, along with 39 other teams, will unleash the fury of FRC for gold and glory.  In addition, the Chairman’s Award Committee will present to a panel of judges and compete for the highest award in all of FIRST. Finally, our two Dean’s List Nominations, Ian Boll and Marcus Bengzon, will be interviewed.
