White Hawks Robotics Team Wins 1st Place in the Lightning Rounds at WPI FIRST LEGO League Open Event

Norwood Robotics scored another impressive win, this time at the Inaugural WPI Annual FIRST LEGO League Open Event, June 9-11, in Worcester, MA. The White Hawks, along with their alliance team from Greece, won first place in the lightning rounds.
The event, which was hosted by Worcester Polytechnic Institute, brought together more than 1,500 young roboticists from around the world to collaborate and compete in research, problem-solving, coding, and engineering. 

"The White Hawks and their peers from Greece demonstrated the power of teamwork, inclusion, respect, and collaboration, which are all part of the FIRST LEGO League core values," said Juan Ramirez, Norwood's director of technology and robotics coach. "The WPI tournament was a great experience, and the White Hawks were able to bring what is probably the first award in an international tournament to Norwood."

Well done, White Hawks!
