Last regular meet

Monday May 23rd is the last day for a regular robotics meeting. We will be breaking down the tables and robots in anticipation of the next season. 

The two teams attending the June 11th Cargo Connect competition will still be meeting and extra days may be added at the request of those teams, subject to availability.

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.

Team name Best score 
 Intensely Dense 205 
 Just existing 110 
 Phantom Destroyers 100 
Pehla 100 
 Uncreative Builders 150 
 e  215
 Competitive Coders 85 
 JDN 70 

 

There will be a scrimmage on June 11th at WPI for the top two teams, using the Cargo Connect table/missions. 

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.
