GW Community School and Coyote Robotics are proud to announce a very successful participation in the FIRST Tech Challenge Virginia Regional Championship Tournament that took place February 27, 2010. Our two teams, #965 Murphy’s Law and #3749 Lambkins had unquestionably two of the best robots out of a field of 38.
Thank you for joining GWCS to bring aid to the people of Haiti -- Realizing that the need for medical support is paramount right now -- GWCS has joined up with Partners In Health. Small individual donations add up quickly. Take a moment of your time and make a donation today. GWCS has set a school goal of $1,000. If each family donated just $20 we would meet our goal.

I am happy to announce the formal organization of Coyote Robotics, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, soon to be incorporated in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
During our organizational meeting this past Tuesday we adopted By-Laws, the members elected a Board of Directors, and the board elected officers. The By-Laws define three levels of membership: Mentor (adult) members, Student (high school-aged) members, and Junior (younger that high school-aged) members. The Mentor and Student members elected a Board of Directors consisting of 3 Mentor members and 2 Student members. The board then elected three officers.
The GWCS Robotics teams attended the workshop/practice/scrimmage at VCU in Richmond Saturday, November 21st. Both GWCS Robotics teams made an impressive showing. Out of 13 teams to participate, our two robots were by far more advanced in their development. During the afternoon session, only two other robots actually made it on to the field for testing. Mostly, it was just our two robots practicing by themselves and against each other. Both robots scored impressively in both the autonomous and remote-controlled modes of the game. There is work ahead before our first official tournament Dec. 19 at Oakton High School, but we are definitely out in front!
