Congratulations to the Emerson E.A.G.L.E.S. robotics team for an outstanding rookie season! They placed 4th at the Mason Qualifier, allowing them to be alliance captains for the finals—a huge honor. After competing hard all day long at the Oxford Qualifier, and performing the “Play of the Day,” the team finished in 6th place, performing well against some very strong, well-established teams. These students represented Emerson so well and showed what true leaders and great engineers they really are. A huge thank you for working so hard all season, and a heartfelt thank you to their mentors who worked equally hard to lead them through this entire season. Well done, EAGLES.
