Three bolts and a washer to the Xaverian Lego League and the Robotics team for competing in the city championships on March 9 to 10. The Genesis Legosmiths (middle schoolers) took home a trophy from the first Lego League Competition for third place in Teamwork, and the Xaverian Brooklyn Blacksmiths, (high schoolers), won their first trophy — the Industrial Safety Award — in the first Robotics Competition.
The Xaverian robot finished the competition with four wins and four losses in the 3-on-3 “Ultimate Ascent” game. The robot reliably scored frisbees into a goal and lifted itself off the ground to hang from a pipe at the end of the matches.
The highest score posted by one of the three Genesis Lego robots playing the “Senior Solutions” game was 154 points from the Purple Pandas. The missions the robots completed were designed to get the students thinking about solving problems associated with our golden years.
