Every week, our Knights strive for the impossible and accomplish different events they may have thought were impossible. Over this past week, our students have accomplished some extraordinary events, including qualifying for the Robotics World Championship, AzSEF accomplishments, and even prestigious awards!

To begin, Eddie Byun, current sophomore at ACP, qualified with his robotics team for the VEX VRS Robotics World Championship. World’s will be held in Louisville, Kentucky, and not only is World’s a great accomplishment for ACP, but it is also a memorable experience for the members of the Robotics Team. Way to go Eddie! On behalf of the newspaper staff, I wish you luck on your journey to Kentucky!

This past Friday, several of our students participated in AzSEF, the Arizona Science and Engineering Fair. Many others students, including Kazushi Iwamoto, Sebastian Javadpoor, Tei Patel, and Sophia Sun, won awards at AzSEF. Kazushi, current junior, participated in the Embedded Systems category in the senior division and won first place for his project “Deep Learning Technology Based Real Time Visual Driving Assistance”. Sebastian, Tej, and Sophia all participated in the Behavior and Social Sceince Category and took home a third place medal. Congratulations!

Finally, Kaitlin Lai, current 9th grader, won two awards: “NOAA 2019 Taking the Pulse of the Planet Award” and “Certificate of Outstanding Achievement”. Her second award was gifted by the American Meteorological Society for excellence in atmospheric or related sciences. Way to go Kaitlin!

Our students have excelled in the academic world and continue to show their extraordinary colors! Make sure to congratulate each of our Knights when you see them in the halls!
