4-H News

On December 16th, 2019 Team Beta (8397), a Plattsburgh's 4H, FTC (First Tech Challenge) robotics team took top honors at the Qualifier in Kingston, NY. They won Winning Alliance Captain (top robot award) and First Inspire (the top award of the competition and a first for the team). With that Team Beta was invited to the Regional Championship in March where they will compete for an opportunity to go to the World Championship in Detroit.

4H Team Beta team is comprised of 15 students (grades 7-12 graders) from Ausable High School, Plattsburgh High School, Northeastern Clinton, Stafford Middle School, and Homeschooled. They compete in the FTC competitions run by FIRST, an exciting international team competition that unites professionals and young people to solve an engineering design problem using robotics in an intense, competitive, and fun way. Through this program, they not only learn STEM skills, but develop excellent skills for working together, technical writing skills and presentation skills.
