Tableau recently sponsored Wolverine Robotics Team 949 from Bellevue High School in the 2009 FIRST Robotics Competition. It was a good year for Team 949. They were given a Judge's Award this year for succeeding with an ambitious plan to grow the team (they went from a very small team to 32 students and started 2 FIRST Lego teams at the local middle school). They also were one of the top 8 teams in the preliminary seeding rounds at the Seattle Regional competition.My daughter was co-president of Team 949 this year, which was a priceless educational experience. The students had 6 weeks to design and build their robot with the help of volunteer adult mentors who do science and technology in their day jobs. Content experts are typically very effective teachers. I remember, in particular, the day of the competition when a motor had failed in the robot. My daughter was deep in the robot diagnosing the problem when everyone realized it was time to head to the floor for the next match. She deftly put the robot back together and they made the next match. FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) has the mission to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership. We have developed the following interactive Tableau view to describe FIRST:
