At the recently held First Tech Challenge Jamaica competition, hosted by Jamaica College, Autovortex and Glenmuir were ranked first and second respectively leading up to the semifinals. They then teamed up, and played up to the finals and emerged winners of the Alliance Award. It's a BIG DEAL!
Our youths are starting to shape the future with their high level of innovativeness, creativity, collaborative skills, communication and critical thinking skills. There is hope.
Glenmuir also earned the Connect Award.
Both teams worked well together on Saturday and have subsequently forged a partnership that will see us working together at the international level. Our vision is to not only be the best Robotics team in the Region but winners of international competitions.
We heartily congratulate the very outstanding team from York Castle High School who earned the Inspire Award and will represent the country at the World Championships in Texas later this year. We wish for them all the best.
Highest commendations to all the other participating schools!
