Congrats Robotics Teams

Congratulations to the high school robotics team, Roaring Riptide! They competed in the Roboticon off season competition this weekend and received the Gracious Professionalism award. Gracious professionalism focuses on respecting each other, valuing each other’s contributions, and giving back to help produce the highest quality work. The idea is that fierce competition and mutual gain among participants are not exclusive.

Congratulations Riptide! Splish, Splish
