Beta Team Places 2nd in Australia

The WDMCS First Tech Challenge (FTC) Robotics Team, Beta, won the semi-final rounds, won the Inspire Award and placed second in the finals at the Asia-Pacific Invitational in Sydney, Australia, last week. The Inspire Award is given to the team that truly embodies the “challenge” of the FTC program and is an inspiration to other teams acting with Gracious Professionalismâ„¢ both on and off the field.

Beta was one of 19 FTC teams competing from around the world. The team won the FTC World Championships in April, and received the Key to the City from the West Des Moines City Council in June.
