Beyond building a competitive robot, however, the judges recognized the ELC?team for connecting.

According to the description from First Tech Challenge, part of the FIRST?Robotic League program, The Connect Award is given to the team that most connects with their local STEM?community. The recipient of the Connect award aggressively seeks engineers and explores the opportunities available in the world of engineering, science and technology. The team has a clear strategic plan and has identified steps to achieve their goals.

Condon said, “Robotics really pushes for creating well-rounded individuals, teamwork, community outreach, innovation, and gracious professionalism.”
