FIRST = For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology
Our eldest son and his friends represent their school to compete in this highly challenging competition of making robots how to control it remotely. This is at South East (Peachtree) regional level. Even though their team lost (35 of 46) but considering that this is the school first attempt, we think it is good enough. Nevertheless, they were awarded the Sportmanship Award. It took them 6 weeks to build the robot and it really paid off.
The team's name is Perdana and the robot's name is Waja. Sound familiar ?
