Three Peabody 8th graders – Ben, Yanni, and Ian (pictured to the right) were part of a community First Tech Challenge  (FTC) Team that went to the regional qualifier  in December 2015. At the regional competition, the team’s robot finished in 6th place out of 30 teams. This is quite an accomplishment because most of the teams are comprised of  high school students.  The team had been working on their robot every weekend since the summer. Way to go gentlemen!
