The FHPS COMETS robotics team, comprised of students from all three high schools finished a stellar year by taking home the “silver” at the world championship. The COMETS is an acronym for Creating Outstanding Minds Embracing Technology and Science. Here’s a recap of their season. The team won all three of the district competitions that they went to. At these district competitions, they also took home the Industrial Design Award, Gracious Professionalism Award, and Chairman’s Award. The Chairman’s Award measures the community impact of a team and is considered the most prestigious award that can be given at a competition. The team went on to the state championship and won their division. Then they went to the world championship, where they also won their division and placed second in the entire championship.
