The Grauer School Hosts Two FTC Robotics Competitions

From Liam Murphy and Morgan Brown, Grauer Robotics Coaches, and Peggy Gardner, Event Organizer:

Grauer's Shockwave Robotics #3848 team hosted and competed in hosted and competed in two FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) robotics meets on The Grauer School’s campus over the last two weeks. On January 26, they hosted an FTC Inter-League Meet that was attended by 15 teams from the San Diego area. On February 9, they hosted the FTC Gauss League Championship, attended by 13 teams from San Diego and Mexico. Both events drew large crowds in Grauer's Meyer Hall, which was filled with the excitement of the "Rover Ruckus" robotics competition.

Congratulations to Grauer's Shockwave Robotics team for wining the Collins Aerospace Innovate Award at the League Championship! This award is given to a team that uses a particularly unique and elegant design to solve an important engineering element, giving the team a clear competitive edge in match performance, and the Shockwave team won the award due to the outstanding design of the arm mechanism on their robot. Congratulations to Bennett P. '19, Nate M. '20, Jason W. '21, Joshua B. '22, Julian I. '22, and Lourdes F. '22. on this award and on a great robotics season!

We could not have presented these successful events without an incredible amount of help from many volunteers including Grauer students, parents, and alumni parents. The team is so appreciative of the help provided by our campus community, and we are thrilled to bring these exciting STEM events to our school to promote the FIRST robotics program and science and technology throughout the San Diego region and beyond.
