It’s National Robotics Week – and one of our area’s student teams has big news: The Seattle Lutheran High School robotics team has qualified for the district championships in Portland. SLHS sends word that Team SeaBot qualified by ranking 46th of 158 teams in Washington, Oregon, and Alaska. 64 teams will compete at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Portland tomorrow through Saturday; the field will be reduced to 30 qualifying for the international FIRST (Robotics) Championship in St. Louis, April 27-30.
The St. Louis competition includes teams from across the U.S. and around the world. (Thanks to Jeannie Flohr at SLHS for the update and photos!)
