10 Olympia School District teams head to the FTC Inter-District Championship

This Sunday, Jan. 17, ten teams from Avanti High School, Capital High School and Olympia High School will head to Wilson High School in Tacoma to compete in the FTC Inter District championship.  All together, around 20 teams will be competing for a birth at the FTC Washington State Championship. In past years, teams from the Olympia School District have proven to be a “Power House” and we expect that many these team will move on to the FTC State Championship on Jan 30, at the ShoWare Center in Renton, WA.

The name of this year’s FTC challenge is FIRST ResQ and this game is quite challenging. Robots have to pick up debris, climb mountains and rescue climbers.  If you would like to learn more about the game, here is the link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inwQ_ykNKQI
