Stardate 2011.07.05 (Tuesday) - The News!

The Moonbots Organizers sent us an e-mail late in the evening announcing that Team Pi In The Sky was one of 20 teams that made it to Phase II of the Moonbots 2.0 Competition.  Everyone was over the moon (pun intentional!)

Rohit was almost asleep when he heard the news, as was Gabriel.  There was a flurry of e-mails between team parents and other members of the local robotics community.  Everyone was thrilled, but also wanted to know about the consequences of success.  While the children were proud of the work they had put in and the resulting accomplishments, the adults were left pondering why they had not planned for this success – everyone had made summer plans already.

The McLean Robotics Institute prepared and sent out a press release.  You can read it here or download it here.
