A good time was had by all. Thank you to the Nutron Robotics team at Revere High for a well run day.
There were some nail biting performances but both Central teams were great. Their simple but effective robots performed well against some very complicated machines, and beat some of them too. Esquadrón de Fuerza were able to finish with the top robots and came in 10th out of 22. This was an amazing achievement since the team was newly formed and had less time. The Golden Gladiators impressed the judges and came away with the Inspiration Award. Their strong research project, engineering design, and core values, combined with a solid robot performance to win them a spot in the Eastern Massachusetts Championship.
Lego Robotics is run by Ms Mastico. The year begins with the international First Lego League competition which we enter with one team of ten (2018 saw the addition of a second Central team). While that team is working everyone else in robotics is part of a team trying to build the best robot and consistently get the most points. After the qualifier, all being well, there will be an in house competition to see who built the best one. Following this there will be a challenge arranged by your coaches, one year was burglar alarms, the next was Sumo bots. This is an in house challenge. Later in the spring Quincy hosts the Presidents cup, a citywide competition between the middle schools. This is usually an old FLL challenge and consists of all the aspects of an official competition.
