Gold Award Scout Wins in Robotics Competition

blog_robotics_LogeaisMadeleine Logeais, a Gold Award Scout from Roseville and student at Visitation School, won the prestigious Dean’s List Award at the international FIRST® Robotics World Competition in St. Louis on April 26. She is one of ten students out of the 68,000 students participating in the program, to receive the award.

It is the first time a Minnesota student has been the recipient of the prestigious Dean’s List Award at the FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics World Championship.

The Dean’s List Award recipients were chosen based on leadership skills, commitment to FIRST® ideals, contribution to their team, and effectiveness in increasing awareness of  FIRST® within their schools and communities.

According to Jonathan Stratis, one of the team’s technical mentors from Boston Scientific, “Madeleine’s perseverance and determination led to the development of a design over Google Hangout and the creation of a CAD model that prepared the team to start final construction earlier in the season than ever before.”

Madeleine will receive an all expenses-paid trip to the FIRST® Dean’s List Award Winners Summit in Manchester, New Hampshire this summer and a recommendation to the college or employer of her choice.

Congratulations Madeleine!

    Way to go Madeline!!! As a six year volunteer with FIRST, I know what an honor this is for you! Congratulations and I hope you become that Mechanical Engineer you expect to be! Keep working hard and you will do great in the world. Maybe one day you will be a strong mentor on a robotics team with many Girl Scouts as members.
    You go Girl! Another wonderful Girl Scout from the Rosewood Service Unit! Wooo Hoooo!!!
