PVJH Robotics Teams Win Awards at Regional Qualifier

Posted December 19th, 2016

Congratulations to the PVJH Robotics Teams!  Five teams of Junior High students competed at the Regional Qualifier at the Putnam Museum on December 10th and 11th.  Every team won at least one award and “Outside the Bots” advanced to the State Championship in January!

We caught up with the teams during their final practice before the Qualifier.  All PV teams compete in the FIRST LEGO League competition.  Teams research a real-world problem (this year the theme focused on the interaction of people and animals) and develop a solution.  The teams also design, build, and program a robot to compete on a table-top playing field.  At the competition, students are judged not only on their robot’s performance, but a presentation of their solution to that real-world problem and also what’s called “Core Values,” which are spirit, teamwork and sportsmanship awards.
