On December 8th Zinc Iridium was honored to host the second qualifier day for the Southern Maryland VEX league. With 22 teams attending, the cafeteria at the King’s Christian Academy was full of hard working students. Team 3077 went 6-2 for the day which put us 4th in the league rankings (30 teams) after two days of qualifiers. The next qualifier day is January 5th @ Patuxent High School.
On December 15th 3077 attended the FTC Southern Maryland Qualifier at the Dr. James A. Forrest Career and Technology Center host by our friends FTC 2843 – Under the Son. Team 3077 had another good day winning 3 matches out of 6. Two other matches ended in 0-0 ties due to penalties. All said and done we were 4th out of the field of 16 teams and were selected to join team 4452 the Wolverines from Watkins Mills High School on the 3rd seed alliance.
We were beat by the 2nd seed alliance in the semi-finals but had a great day. Team 3077 was also a finalist for the Rockwell Collins Innovate Award, but did not bring home any trophy’s. Our next FTC Qualifier is January 12th the the US Naval Academy!
