Robotics Competition 2017

After months and countless hours of preparation and practice, the Hicksville Middle School robotics teams, led by Ms. Temps and Ms. Brucato, competed at the First Lego League Regional Qualifiers in January.  The theme for the competition was Animal Allies.  Students were judged on the performance of their robots with specified tasks, their project presentations, and their core value representations.  The Meteorites earned the prestigious Gracious Professionalism Award.  This award recognizes a team whose members show each other and other teams respect at all times. They recognize that both friendly competition and mutual gain are possible, on and off the playing field.  Congratulations to the Meteorites, the Meteorites Squared, and their coaches on a job well done.
