Congratulaions to our Robotics Teams! Even in this odd year, the teams prepared together and presented virtually for the regional competetion.

The CodingCats team did well in each category:
robot runs – building and programming an EV3 robot to complete missions
innovation project – identifying a solving a real world problem
robot design – providing an explanation of robot design, programs, and mission choices
and core values – evaluating how a team works together.

They also won the “Core Values – Finalist” award.
Closing ceremonies will be April 24 and they will submit their tournament videos in late March or April.
The CodingCats Team: Claire Bauer, Maggie Berwick, Erin Lynch, Megan Newell, Katie Strzyzynki, Grace Trunnell, and Annie Utech.

The 6th grade co-ed team – The Wild Gears – won the “Rising Stars” award (which basically is 1st place for rookie teams). This is the same award the CodingCats won last year as a rookie team. The Wild Gears Team: Sean Allen, Ian Bauer, Matthew Hervas, Elizabeth Schermerhorn, and Anna Stuber.

We have two other Robotics teams:
MechaniCats – 8th grade co-ed team: Billy Allen, Michael Bauer, Avery Brooks, Leah Collins, Marco Hervas, Charlie Hoeper, Lucy Jochaniewicz, and Ainslie McKenna.

WildGears – 7th grade boys’ team: Jake Bondy, Luke Brommelsiek, Nicholas Nicholadis, Ben Stuber.
