Congratulations to our talented FIRST robotics team (“The Bot Side”), who won the Motivate Award for best team spirit at last weekend’s State championship held at Bridgewater State University. Competing in States for the third year, The Bot Side (Team 5397) led the field of 32 school teams until late in the daylong tourney. Disappointing as the final outcome was, the team’s spirit and sportsmanship stood out to the judges and earned them recognition and a trophy.
The students on the team are: Ishrat Aishee ’16, manager; Arnav Chatterjee ’15, commander; Gaurav Chatterjee ’14, software; Sam Clark ’14, software; Stephen Felix ’14, hardware; Domonique Griffin ’16, outreach; Biondy Lisieux ’14, manager; Masroque Musa ’14, outreach; Tristan Pepin ’14, captain; Ranjan Regmi ’17, hardware and Mehret Tadesse ’14, hardware. They are coached by CCSC Director of Technology Neal Landry and IT Coordinator Dave Scott. The team practices after school throughout the school year and hosts two events annually at the MIT Museum.
The Bot Side was featured in the March-April issue of Scout Cambridge magazine (read article).
