CARMEL, N.Y. -- The George Fischer Middle School Robotic Rams in Carmel participated in the annual first LEGO League Regional Tournament at Poughkeepsie Day School.
The competition was held on Saturday, Feb. 6.
The competition included twelve middle school teams from Plattsburgh to Scarsdale.
The Teams competed in four categories:
- Robot performance, where the robot is programmed to autonomously solve different missions with various levels of difficulty.
- Robot Design, where the team explained how they programmed the robot to use a gyro and sonic sensors to solve missions.
- Core Values, where the team discussed their learning experience while in the robotics club.
- “Trash Trek” project, where the team presented a solution to using recycled material to alleviate the trash issues of their community.
Although the team did not win an award this year, previous Carmel Robotic Ram teams won the Robot Design and Core Value awards.
