The competition at Revere was intense. Both teams performed well but with only ten of the thirty six teams advancing to the next round, we didn't make it. This table has some tricky obstacles with the missions appearing to be simple but with surprising conundrums. Both teams scored consistently well over five rounds which is an achievement since so much can go wrong. This was the first FLL competition we have attended since 2019 and we're looking forward to the Citywide event in the spring.

Central Competition

It was a nail-biter. Everyone had good scoring rounds and they got to see how it is at competition. Two and a half minutes is both ages long and not enough time. The winners were e with a total of 215, closely followed by Intensely Dense at 205.

What is the Robotics program at Central?

Lego Robotics is run by Ms. Mastico. It is mostly focused on the First Lego League robotics competition. A table has tasks to be completed and the students build and program the robot that will do as many of those tasks as possible. 

Fall robotics

The year begins with the international First Lego League competition. Students are organized into teams of two to ten people, and develop a robot to do this year’s tasks. Two teams are entered into the official regional FLL qualifier and move on to State if successful. The two official teams are also required to complete a research and design project that complements the theme of the challenge.

After the qualifier, 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 challenge is only at Central and is informal. 

Spring robotics

Later in the spring, Quincy hosts the President's Cup, a citywide competition between the middle schools. This is usually a past FLL challenge and consists of all the aspects of an official competition.
