Welcome to PWCS Robotics

 

FLL Fun Day 2021 (May 2021)

Thank you to our friends from FIRST Robotics.  They pulled together a celebration of our elementary FIRST LEGO League teams for the craziness of the 2020-21 season.  This one hour video highlights the many things that the teams could do even when they could not be together.  https://youtu.be/AGx6S5bqodA

FLL Regional Tournaments and the FLL State Championship 2020

Congratulations to our schools that represented PWCS in the virtual FLL Regional Tournaments this year.  Each team competed via Zoom and were interviewed by a panel of judges.  In addition, each team had to submit video of their Innovation Projects and their Robot Game runs.  This was not an easy task and we are so very proud of you.

Chris Yung Elementary School' team The Spunkies won a spot to the FLL State Championship where they virtually competed with teams from across the Commonwealth of Virginia.

VEX IQ and VEX State Championship 2020

This year's VEX IQ and VEX State Tournaments had the most teams from PWCS ever!! We are so happy that they got to play in this championship event before the pandemic closed our schools and social distancing started.

For this event, there were 46 PWCS teams from 14 different schools - 

Elementary Schools: Glenkirk (2 teams), Triangle.

Middle Schools: Benton (3 teams), Beville, Gainesville (5 teams), Lake Ridge (3 teams), Parkside (3 teams), Porter, Potomac (2 teams). 

High Schools:  Colgan (6 teams), Forest Park (5 teams), Woodbridge (5 teams).

We are so proud of all the teams that were invited to the VEX IQ and VEX Tournament. It was so awesome to see Prince William County Schools pride when everyone cheered for everyone.  My favorite memory was when Glenkirk Elementary was in the finals and all the high school kids filled the bleachers screaming for them!

After tough battles on the fields, the following PWCS teams won at spot to the VEX World Championship this year.  It is sad that they did not get to experience the VEX World Championship but we should be celebrating their successes!  We are all PWCS Proud of you all!
