  • Congratulation to CHS robotics team Zebrotics 5708 for winning the Judges Award: Passion for Engineering at the March robotics competition, based on interviews the judges did with students. This is a prestigious award to win because the judges felt the team did something outstanding that was not included in the regular awards. The entire team contributed to obtaining this award, however, Ned Capuano, Giuliano Fonte-Basso, Elizabeth Plotner, and Lucas Reading-Sunol were the students interviewed by the judges. Way to represent, Zebras!
