IS 93/Carnota Eagles Win Third in Design!

Today, I am letting the photographs do most of the talking. I am too exhausted from such a long weekend and the the stress from competing to write too much.

I will say I am proud to be the coach of such excellent students. Watching them compete with poise and dignity was quite an experience for me. I read their faces all day long and saw the many emotional ups and downs from the effects of competing and trying so hard.

We also had so many parents, friends and family present. "Thank you" to them for supporting us.

On 1/29/06 I was at the ocean oddessy official compitition in Manhatan. We wore these costumes that looked like we just cleaned an oil spill and everyone loved it. We also wore caps that were custom made by our coaches and they looked great to. For me it took a while getting used to the costumes. When we started the compitition (at 10:08 or something like that)we didn't do so well(Gary and I). At first we got 142 then we got 212 then 222 and then the last round we got 212. At the end we came in 8th place, which was really good. We got 8th out of 70. One award Gary and I won was 3rd place in robot design this again was out of 70. At the end it wasn't realy about winning but about learning and having fun. Another cool thing is a camera was following us all day I bet eveyone else was jelous. Now I am happy the compitition is over because now we can have mini compititions against our coaches.
From, Robert

As someone who has seen many many teams compete, I can tell you that the effort and accomplishment of the IS 93 teams were truly special. You should all feel proud, not only of your award, but of all the work you've done, how you comported yourselves, how you prepared, and how you performed under pressure. Also, thanks for the IS 93 cap!
