Beaverton School District Board Recognition
Sharing FIRST Worlds experience with Beaverton School Board
Following our success at the 2016 FTC World Championship, we were invited our local school district’s monthly board meeting. Superintendent Jeff Rose recognized the team in front of the district board and attendees of the meeting. At the event, we spoke about FIRST robotics and how the school district and parent attendees can get involved. We also shared our team achievements and goals of expanding FIRST and STEM, and finally demonstrated the Res-Q robot, “Wolverine”.
Cathy Swider from ORTOP talked about how local schools can now apply for grants to start new robotics teams from Oregon Department of Education.
