TidePool App
by Clara Layzer, Conor Gormally, Declan Farr, Laura Freeman, and Maeve Eickelberg
Our team, TidePool, is developing a native android app that will help Pacific Northwest beach-goers quickly identify organisms that they find on the beach. We will ask questions about easily discernible traits, such as organism pigmentation and habitat, which will narrow down a list of possible organism matches so that the user may identify the species they see.

Garfield Dawgbots ranks 2nd in League Competition
Our Garfield HS Dawgbotic team is off to a great start ranking 2nd at our first competition against 11 local teams, last Saturday (Nov 21, 2015. FIRST FTC Ritchie League). Our thick tread allowed us to climb up the “Mountain” well to score points and a late arm innovation allowed us to plop “climbers” into the side baskets during the crucial last contest.  Our next competition is Saturday, Dec 12th at Seattle Academy.  Go Dawgbots!!
