IMS Robotics Teams Tackle Bellevue Competition
On Dec. 3, Issaquah Middle School students participated in the FLL (FIRST Lego League) Robotics Challenge at Chinook Middle School in Bellevue. In this competition, student teams are given a real-world scientific challenge to research. They must design and program Lego Education robots to complete tasks, and then meet for regional, national and international tournaments to compete, share their knowledge, compare ideas, and display their robots.
Two teams represented IMS this year – the Robo Royals and the IRS (Issaquah Robotics Sorority). Both groups displayed exceptional teamwork and performed to the best of their abilities. The Robo Royals received a Breakthrough Award (award for best overall game) and will advance to the semifinal tournament in January.
Nikitha K., president of the IMS Robotics Club, especially wanted to acknowledge their advisor, Mr. Parisi, for his mentorship. ”I am very proud of our team for reaching the next level, and we could not have accomplished this without Mr. Parisi. We walked into the competition arena with confidence and determination, and we used teamwork to perform to the best of our ability.”
