High School Robotics Competes at World ChampionshipThirty-two students from Longwood High School recently competed in the 2019 FIRST Robotics World Championship Competition joining more than 400 teams from across the country and 50 teams from around the world. 

Held in Detroit, Michigan from April 23-26, this year’s theme was “Destination: Deep Space” and robots were tasked to secure a spacecraft door, load cargo, and climb platforms.  Out of six divisions, Longwood’s Robotics Team 564 placed 37th out of 68 in the Archimedes Division.  

Throughout the three-day competition, students attended networking events with industry professionals, participated in innovative technology projects and learned about global career opportunities in science and engineering.  As ambassadors of FIRST, students escorted dignitaries on tours of the programs, pits, and playing fields.  The team collaborated and interacted with hundreds of students, business leaders, and professionals from all over the world.

“Our robotics team members displayed gracious professionalism, a willingness to help others, and a strong passion for inspiring others to see beyond the robot and grow as the next generation of innovators in the world of STEM,” said Robotics Coach Deb Lang.  “Every student represented our school with integrity and character.  We are extremely proud of them.”
