Robotics Tournament at Westwood High School
Deerpark's robotics teams attended the First Lego League Tournament on Saturday, November 12th, at Westwood High School. They used their math skills, flow charted, and programmed a robot to make one of the best showings our school has ever made at a qualifying tournament. Students were judged in four categories. In Core Values, students from both teams received high marks on their clear definition of team roles, and one of our judges commented after the tournament about how amazing our teams were in her room. In Robot Design and Programming, both teams received all 3's and 4's for their innovation and strategy for their programming. The students were judged on a research project, team Corrupted OS researched making the transport of sushi safer and team The Most Interesting Robot in the World, researched how to keep coffee fresher from harvest to table. Both teams fared well in this category with The Most Interesting team getting high marks for their engaging presentation and the Corrupted team getting high marks for their in depth research. The last category teams were judged on how well they did on the First Lego League Food Factor Mat. The Most Interesting team paced 7 out of 24 teams and Corrupted OS placed 18 out of 24 teams. Well done Deerpark Robotics!
