Of course they are winners! Look how far they have come and how much they have learned. Yes, it's disappointing to not make the finals, but they have still had an amazing journey and they are having fun.

I hope you all can make better time heading back home though...

Oh, yes they are! The difference in their robot yesterday, after they repaired that one "teeny tiny line of code", was visible over the NASA live feed. So proud of them.

Watching the matches (we watched a lot over the last two days) I noticed that this may be the world competition, with kids there from all over the world, but they were all just the same as the local competition; intense, wonderfully dazed kids in costumes and t-shirts struggling to show the best of their robots. Most of them were so focused on their robot that they couldn't hear the moderator asking them if they were ready. Amazing event, amazing kids.


Wise beyond his years, your Tre. Congratulations to everyone involved.


Yes with that attitude they ARE winners!
