Iron Eagles Received Award While at VEX Robotics World Championship!

Iron Eagles Received Award While at VEX Robotics World Championship!
Posted 04/22/2015 01:19PM


The AACS Upper School Robotics Team, the Iron Eagles (team 341), has returned from a very successful experience at the Vex Robotics Worlds Championship, which was held this year from April 15-18 in Louisville, KY.

The event is the world's largest robotic competition including almost 700 teams from elementary school to university and attended by over 30,000 students from 29 countries.

The Iron Eagles had earned their invite to the event by claiming First Place in the Online Challenge for Future Foundation and received special acclaim when their entry was showcased during the Opening Ceremony. The team greatly enjoyed competing and also received their first place award from the judges in front of thousands of people at the Kentucky Exposition Center, where part of their video – which shows scenes at AACS – was played for the huge crowd on the Jumbotrons.

On the competition field the team ended a very respectable 34 out of 90 in the Engineering Division, which produced the World Champion Alliance. The Iron Eagles beat their ranking from the 2014 World Championship with a final score of 6 wins and 4 losses. The team showcased their backpack animated eagle mascot robot that might have been one of the most photographed robots at the event.

The Iron Eagles had an amazing time at the 2015 Vex World Championships, and is anticipating success in the upcoming robotics season!

Way to go Iron Eagles!

Spring Fling: Adult Volunteers Needed

Posted On: 10/25/2016 4:45 PM
For those who are new to AACS, or whose kids have just aged-in to Spring Fling, this is a life-changing opportunity for them to meet God on their own (apart from family traditions/patterns), amid their peers, and with counselors (maybe you?) who will work to show them just how wide, deep and high God's love is for *them.* It is a great Christmas gift...for some their first "solo" vacation, for others, the vacation they look forward to all year! We need adult volunteers! Come see for yourself!
