Once again, I can report that it was a breakthrough championship event for Waterford Robotics!
Greetings Raven Robotics Supporters!
I write this after our first day of competition at the 2017 World Championship.

During Spring Break, fourteen Waterford juniors and seniors and three faculty members flew to Kolkata, India to take part in service with two different organizations. The majority of the service days were spent working with the Missionaries of Charity organization (founded by Mother Teresa) at two different residences for adults and children with profound mental and physical disabilities. The group also spent time at a girls’ home established to take in girls who were orphaned or cast off from their families.
