SRTC was happy to welcome our partner district Superintendents and School Committee members for our first in-person meeting in some time on Friday, May 6th. Guests were treated to lunch in the SRTC Culinary Arts Cafe and then heard from SRTC students through a panel discussion and the opportunity to meet in a small group with SRTC students from their district. This event is an annual favorite for many and this year was no exception. Thank you to our SRTC students who served on the panel and those who agreed to meet with their district guests to talk about their experiences at SRTC. Thank you also to Chef John Couture and his students who provided a lovely lunch.

Best of luck to students in the Engineering Applications with Robotics Program at SRTC, who are preparing to complete in FIRST Robotics events in Waterville this weekend. These challenging events are described on the FIRST website as the “Ultimate Sport of the Mind.” The website further describes the events as follows, “Under strict rules and limited time and resources, teams of high school students are challenged to build industrial-sized robots to play a difficult field game in alliance with other teams, while also fundraising to meet their goals, designing a team “brand,” and advancing respect and appreciation for STEM within the local community.” This year, our team has been working diligently to design, build, and program a robot to succeed in the game, which involves launching a ball into hoops at various heights and maneuvering the robot to climb. The students are pleased to compete in the first events to be held in person in two years and they feel confident and proud of their success in preparing for competition. Although spectators are not allowed for the event this weekend, it will stream on the NEFIRST Blue channel at www.twitch.tv/nefirst_blue. Good luck, Team 3451! The photo shows students from the AM session of the program posing with the robot for this year’s events.
