MHS Robotics Team

Below is a guest post from Mr. Diamond, Science Teacher and Robotics Team Advisor:

Earlier this month, the MHS Robotics team, Milton Static, competed in a 16 team qualifier tournament at Lexington High School in hopes to secure a spot in the State meet at Bridgewater State University on March 1st.  

The team placed 4th overall with a heart-breaking loss in the semi-finals.  The students showed great sportsmanship and professionalism throughout the day-long event and I'm very proud of their hard work and dedication to the team.

During the ending ceremony, Milton Static received of a very prestigious award for innovation and design of the robot. The team received a trophy for their efforts.  The name and description of the award can be found here: http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/ftc/rockwellcollinsinnovate

Our students put in countless hours after school (and a few Saturday mornings) in preparation for this event and I couldn't be happier with their performance.  They were consistent and competitive in all 8 of their matches and represented Milton proudly.

I'd also like to mention an upcoming club event.  Milton Static will be hosting our second annual FTC qualifier meet at the Cunningham/Collicot School on Sunday, February 2nd from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. We will be hosting 20 different teams/schools.  Please stop by and watch some of the matches!
