A huge congratulations to Maker Depot’s sponsored robotics team JDroids
for becoming NJ State Champions in the FIRST® Tech Challenge!
Student teams in grades 7 to 12 competing in this challenge were required to develop a strategy and build robots based on engineering principles. Awards are based on the competition requirements as well as community outreach, design, and other real-world accomplishments. JDroids advances to the World Championship held annually in St. Louis, MO. Congratulations! We know you all worked very hard for this award!
Double congratulations to JDroids for winning the 2016 NJ District 11 #CongretionalApp Challenge!
The Congressional App Challenge encourages students to code by creating their own app. The hope of Congress is to highlight the importance of computer science and STEM education and encourages students to engage in these fields.
