Wando Advanced Robotics Earns General Motors Industrial Design Award at FRC Regional
Wando Advanced Robotics (WAR) performed beautifully at the FRC North Carolina Regional!
The WAR team was recognized for its commitment to safety and earned (for the second year in a row) the FRC Safety Pin!
Even better, WAR finished fifth overall out of fifty-five Atlantic coast teams after being seeded sixth at the end of the qualifying rounds.
But best of all, this talented and dedicated group of Wando students won the prestigious General Motors Industrial Design Award for most efficient, elegant, and robust robot! This coveted award is a tribute to the hard work and ingenuity of the students and STEM teachers of Wando and their dedicated professional mentors.
Wando Advanced Robotics is supported by Bosch, SAIC, NDEP-SPAWAR, Coca-Cola, Boeing, Blackbaud, CCSD, Leidos, Wando High School, SolidWorks, and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers.
