this verifies that Gunn is an outstanding high school. many Gunn grads are very successful in successful careers. the Gunn Alumni Association is very active
As a Gunn alum (and Paly parent) I congratulate the outstanding achievement of these cool kids. Hope you had fun, doing this!
Hi, GRT placed 1st in the Competition, and won the Engineering Excellence Award and the Industrial Safety Award (no rankings).
Other robotics teams compete in local competitions (San Jose, Davis). Gunn must be extraordinarily well funded.
I give out pretty good quotes, if I say so myself.
Actually Gunn robotics is Not well funded compared to other bay area teams. It is the least funded in that aspect. The reason being that companies think it is well funded, hence they do not sponsor it!
So if you know of any business that would like to sponsor the team, or you are such a business - please contact their coach/contact listed on their website page.
I believe that Seth Mallory play a great roll as an adviser to the team and should be acknowledged as well.
The Girl Scouts robotics team called the Space Cookies won the Chairmen's award at the regional last weekend. Many of the Girl Scouts are from Palo Alto. Way to go Girl Scouts. The next competition for the Girl Scouts, Palo Alto High School, Castilleja School, and GRT will be at San Jose State University March 28-30. Admission is free but best wear closed toed shoes.
On top of spending many hours in their club building their robots these students spent an enormous number of hours cooking, cleaning and selling food at the concessions at Stanford sporting events in order to raise money for their projects. This is a major commitment of time and energy. These students should be commended for their dedication. Those with snide remarks are lacking something in their life. Try getting involved in something that is meaningful to you like these students have done. Go Gunn Robotics!!!
