Today, as we welcome everyone back from April Break, we are sharing a link to a wonderful feature story about CCSC’s robotics team, “The Bot Side,” that appeared last week on NPR’s Science Friday blog. Our three-year-old team competes in the First Technology Challenge, which as the NPR blogger notes:

“…replicates the types of experiences students would get spending time in a technical field, and is regularly held up as an example for how to recruit and train future engineers. Indeed, The Bot Side team amassed an impressive list of skill sets and accomplishments that would surely make any headhunter, let alone college admissions counselor, lean forward with interest. And even though the students admitted to regularly being frustrated and spending tons of out-of-school hours on the robot, their overwhelming attitude was one of gratitude for the fun they had and friends they made.”
