The JC Robotics team was successful at the United States First Robotics Competition, held in New York in February, where they won a number of sectional prizes, including the Inspire Award and the Motivator Award. The team will be competing in the For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology Tech Challenge World Championship in Missouri on April 26, where they made history last year, placing 43rd out of 128 teams.
