LigerBots Explain ‘Gracious Professionalism and Coopertition’ in Newton TAB and will Demonstrate Same at BU Event, Apr. 2-3

Be sure to read the LigerBots’ op-ed column in the Newton TAB, which explains, with examples, the value of two key tenets that drive the innovation, success, and character-building of FIRST Robotics:

  • Gracious Professionalism — “the idea that rather than taunting or jeering opponents, teams should compliment and even help their competitors when needed”
  • Coopertition — “displaying unqualified kindness and respect, even in the face of fierce competition”

The LigerBots invite the entire community to see, cheer, and learn about this at its next competition, on April 2-3 at Boston University (Agganis Arena, 925 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston — see schedule).  It’s free, open to all, inspirational, and a blast.
