The Rubies, a FIRST Tech Challenge Robotics team (the next level above GISE & GEMS), won the prestigious Control award and were finalists for the Motivate award at the FTC State Tournament on February 6th. The Control award is given to the team who best masters robot intelligence through the use of sensors and software while the Motivate award celebrates teams exemplifying the core values of the program through outreach, team-building, and enthusiasm. The Rubies consist of LHCS 8th grader and lead programmer Rachel S as well as 9th graders (and LHCS alumni) Izzy M, Isabella K, Ava K, and Adelaide F. Competing against students in up to 12th grade they were the only first year team to win a judged award. Congratulations girls! For more details see their press release click here
