Members from all five of Bellevue School District’s high school robotics teams attended the 8th Annual Washington Girls Generation Robotics Competition. The high school FRC (FIRST Robotics Competition) teams from Bellevue, Interlake, International, Newport and Sammamish all did exceptionally well at this event – with Interlake (team 1899) and their Alliance Partners (team captain 2910 and partners 2522 and 4180) winning in the finals.
Washington’s Girls Generation was first hosted in 2012 to help introduce more young women to STEM. Over the past eight years it has grown into a huge annual event near the beginning of each school year. Girls Generation has been a great opportunity for the girls to shine, as only girls have been allowed to drive and fix the robot. Congratulations to those who participated and represented our BSD schools – and thanks to the Bellevue Schools Foundation for supporting our high school robotics programs!
