Headed to the Semi Finals
The Saint Patrick Catholic School FIRST LEGO League Wilde-Kratts and the Lucky Charms teams are headed to the Washington state semi-finals in January 2019 after winning the South Sound Regional Robotics Qualifier held at Salish Middle School in Lacey, Washington this month.
Both teams wowed their judges with their gracious professionalism, programming, mechanical design, research, innovation, and robotics competition scores, earning 2nd and 3rd place in the robot game, respectively.
The Astrobots had a solid performance and the Androids earned the Gracious Professionalism award. Gracious Professionalism is part of the ethos of FIRST. It’s a way of doing things that encourages high-quality work, emphasizes the value of others, and respects individuals and the community.
With Gracious Professionalism, fierce competition and mutual gain are not separate notions. Gracious professionals learn and compete like crazy, but treat one another with respect and kindness in the process. They avoid treating anyone like losers. No chest thumping tough talk, but no sticky-sweet platitudes either. Knowledge, competition, and empathy are comfortably blended.
In the long run, Gracious Professionalism is part of pursuing a meaningful life. One can add to society and enjoy the satisfaction of knowing one has acted with integrity and sensitivity.
