On Sunday, January 19th, the North Shore Christian School Robotics Team, along with 26 other teams from all over New England, competed at Hopkinton High School, in the Hopkinton Squared Away IQ Qualifier. This was North Shore Christian School’s second robotics tournament this season. NSCS’s teams consisted of an elementary team named the Brobots, a 6th and 7th grade team dubbed the Code Breakers and an 8th grade team known as the Steam Punks.
The Brobots received the Judges Award which is given to the team deserving recognition for special accomplishments. They were also awarded the Think Award which highlights the team with impressive and effective robot programming.
The Steam Punks walked away with the Amaze Award, an award for the team with an amazing, well rounded, and top performing robot. The Steam Punks also received 2nd Place in the Teamwork Challenge Finalist Award. This honor qualifies them for the State Finals.
The Code Breakers and the Steam Punks earned their spots to compete in the Massachusetts/Rhode Island State Championship which takes place at the end of February. Congratulations to both teams. The Brobots have one more chance to secure a spot in the State Championships. They will be competing in the WPI VEXIQ Qualifier at the Worcester Polytech Institute on February 1st. We will be cheering for the Brobots during their upcoming tournament.
