A special all-girls squad from the Bainbridge High School robotics team, the Spartronics, took second place overall in the last weekend’s All Girls’ Generation Robotic competition.

“There were 24 teams competing and our team made it to the final round and came in second,” said Head Coach Enrique Chee. “The team did an amazing job.”

The competition was held at Tahoma Jr. High School in Ravensdale.

Though this competition is only for girls and designed to encourage young ladies to get interested in science and robotics, according to Chee the BHS club isn’t much of a boys club anyway.

“This year our Spartronic Team has over 50 students, 20 of which are girls,” he said. “Compare to last year we had over 30 students and only four girls.”
