Last week our Sammamish, Newport, Interlake and International High School Robotics teams all competed at the PNW District Championships against the top 64 FRC robotics teams. Teams from Sammamish, Newport and Interlake all qualified to compete in Houston from April 17 – 20 at the FIRST Robotics World Championship. Thanks to the Bellevue Schools Foundation for supporting our high school robotics programs!

FTC Robotics Teams Robo Eclipse and TechNova, who are comprised of students from BSD schools, will also advance to the FIRST Robotics World Championship.
