Congratulations to the International School’s Titans Robotics team (#492) and to Newport High School’s NRG team (#948) which both qualified for the FIRST FRC World Championships!
Both high school teams clinched their qualification at the Pacific Northwest District Championships April 5-8 in Cheney, Wash. International and Newport finished in the top 20 of 155 teams and will represent the PNW District at the FIRST FRC World Championships April 20-22 in Houston, Texas.
These teams focus on increasing involvement in science, technology, math, engineering and business through building robots and participating in the annual FIRST Robotics competitions. They had six weeks to build a 120 pound robot that could deliver gears, make baskets with balls, and climb a rope in a 2 minute 15 second match.

Both teams’ trips to the World Championship were made possible in part by support from the Bellevue Schools Foundation.
