Albany High Robotics club won the highest honor: the Engineering Professionalism award!

The Albany High Robotics club did very well this year in the 2015 Pioneers in Engineering (PiE) Robotics Competition held at the Lawrence Hall of Science April 25-26. This competition is sponsored by Tau Beta Pi, the engineering honor society at UC Berkeley. The judges are Mechanical Engineering professors at Cal. Each year Albany High School competes in this eight week labor intensive event. This has been our 10th year. This year, the club was its largest with 18 participants. The team designed and built a robot that met the game criteria with an elegant solution to this years competition challenge. We are pleased to announce that Albany won the highest honor: the Engineering Professionalism award. In addition the team won the Journaling award for the best robotics journal and were cPompetition champions with their alliance team. No team, in the history of PiE has ever won three of the most prestigious awards in one competition! Albany High beat 20 other local Bay Area high school teams to win this years competition.

Albany High School Robotics club is all volunteer. Students fund raise for the competition entry fees. The team meets weekly throughout the academic year with a more intensified schedule leading up to the competition. Unlike our club team, some of the competitors actually have the advantage of meeting each week as an academic class! The intelligence, passion and commitment of our students is exceptional.

One of the greatest accomplishments of the robotics team has been the many students who have pursued mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science degrees in college. We have robotic club alumni working as software engineers, both in major tech companies like Google and cutting edge tech start-ups. Go AHS Robotics!
