Team

Ours is a community-based program with students from a variety of public, private and home schools. This year, we have seven members ranging from an 8th grader playing up to a college-bound senior in her last year on the team.

Season

The team volunteered at three tournaments with responsibilities including head referee, referee, referee scorekeeper, and volunteer coordinator. They went to two elementary school and talked to the students about robotics and let them drive their robot at a STEAM night and Pi night. They volunteered at the Joe Gibbs Youth for Tomorrow STEM Zone assisting visitors with interactive STEM activities. One team member, Maya Keely, won volunteer of the year at the Virginia State Championship in 2018.
