The Paca Wolves Robotics team recently participated in the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Lego League Hydro Dynamics challenge sponsored by the School-Business Partnerships of Long Island and had a great time demonstrating their knowledge, enthusiasm and genuine enjoyment of robotics.
“The students’ creative thinking, research abilities, and sense of community were demonstrated as they wowed the judges and their parents during the presentation of their project on cleaning the water supplied to and from homes in our area,” said Emmanuel Nigro, William Paca Middle School science teacher and club advisor. “Their knowledge, enthusiasm, and humor were noted by the judges. During the judging session for teamwork and sportsmanship, they showed how they came up with solutions as a team.”
Additionally, the Paca Wolves were able to work side-by-side with the Floydbots, William Floyd Elementary School’s robotics team, who helped them make modifications during the robot performance competition and cheered them on during the last competition of the day. The Paca Wolves then had the opportunity to pay it forward by assisting another team by lending their data transfer cable so they could reprogram their robot.
