  • We will be starting work on Cargo Connect the latest competition from First Lego League
  • Teams of up to ten will design and build to complete specific tasks
  • Check out this video for information about the season

How to register

Grade 7&8 are completely full. We are waiting to get back the sign up slips from grade 6  - there MAY still be room so students are going on the waitlist for that possibility and will be informed if they open up. 

FLL competition is closed to anyone over grade 8 so that age group is given the team position for the official competition. Two teams will compete in the fall competition  but everyone will compete against each other in our mini Central competition. If we can coordinate it we might even be able to invite other Quincy teams too. Everyone who attends will be part of a team designing, building, and programming a robot.

In the spring city-wide competition we can field as many teams as we have robots, so everyone can take part in that. Anyone on the waitlist will be given first refusal for spaces for the spring session.

Revere Qualifier 2019

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. Every round saw a solid point return and the consistency of the machines was impressive. There were some challenges that came up on the day but both teams rose to the occasion and prevailed despite this. They graciously shared their space with others and were exemplary in comportment and professionalism.

What is the Robotics program at Central? 

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 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.
