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.
