The iLite IT UP! Team 6129 would also like to extend its gratitude and appreciation to all of the volunteers/organizers/students who made this Saturday's Haymarket tournament a great time and a really cool experience. It is great to see these future leaders in STEM being treated like rock stars!
Also, a special thanks to the students from the Battlefield High School Robotics team for taking the time and interest to mentor our team this season. It was a great learning experience for our team.
