             MY FAVORITE TEAM
              
By Bethany Metcalf
Above is the name chosen by Ashland students for their Robotics Team. When their entrance in a competition is announced, it forces the announcer to say, "Our NEXT competitor is MY FAVORITE TEAM!" Such clever young people—in more ways than one!

Last week we were revisited by the Ashland High School Robotics Team and they brought the functioning robot that they created for this year's competition. What a treat it was to see the video of their competition, and the actual robot. We sat, listening in awe as they told us what they had learned the past year. The team has grown larger each year and several girls have joined. 

Last year they scored 50th out of 152 teams. This year they were 37th out of 158 teams. Progress! The cost of entering this competition is about $30,000, including materials and travel to competition. MM was very generous last fall, donating $1,000 to their cause. 

The team created a new word to describe the quality most important to the work they do together. They combine  cooperation and competition and call it "COOPERTITION". It is obvious these young people are completely dedicated to their task, to the competition, and to the learning that their work together generates. 

In the fall, we plan to visit their building site at the high school and watch their creative process. Gerry Goozee has volunteered to bring her delicious cookies.
