In the 2018 Milwaukee Regional Tournament our team placed 1st & was recognized with a Renaissance Award.

In 2018 Wisconsin Affiliate Tournament  our team placed 2nd & was recognized with another Renaissance Award.

The Renaissance Award is a prestiges award that recognizes those among us who demonstrate extraordinary amounts of effort and preparation in their solutions or outstanding skill in engineering, design or performance.

With that our team “Blood Sweat and Socks” from Muskego-Norway School District has been invited to participate in the Global Finals 2018 in Knoxville, TN from May 23 – May 26th.

This is a huge honor for our team as global finals has 17,000 attendees with 8,000 students from 15 countries, they will demonstrate their challenge as well as being able to attend over 40 workshops.

The registration fees for the Global Finals are being partially funded by the school district.  The team needs to fund the remainder of the cost  to travel to Knoxville which is approximately $7,000.00, including room and board.

As some of our team members are starting high school next year, this will be the last year our team will participate together. It has been amazing watching this team grow, 4 years together and they really are a one of a kind team.
