The Sidwell Friends Robotics Teams Successfully Kick Off the Season

The Sidwell Friends robotics team competed in their first qualifier of the season Dec. 15 and showed once again the STEM excellence they’ve become known for. Four teams competed: the veteran No Jons, the Swervos, the Boomers, and Cyber Insecurities, our rookie team. After 22 teams competed over five rounds, the No Jons were in 3rd place; after the elimination rounds they won the entire competition, qualifying for the state championship in March. The other three teams will attempt to qualify in their next competition on Jan. 18. Congratulations to the No Jons and good luck to our other SFS teams!
