Poetry Out Loud -- School Final Results

Congratulations to all. The entire community should be proud of these amazing students.
The Kingswood robotics team, The Resistance went to their first competition March 6th and 7th held at the University of New Hampshire. Often referred to as the varsity Sport for the MindT™, First Robotics Competition combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of 25 students or more are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It’s as close to “real-world engineering” as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. Teams are made up of students in grades 9 – 12.
“However, on our last match on Friday, the team paired up with two robots that matched up well with our skill set. As a result, the last match played for the elimination rounds was the highest scoring match of all 72 played! “
Immediately after this match the KRHS engineers went into the selection round and were paired with team #126 from Clinton, MA. During that round they faced the #2 ranked alliance in the quarterfinals. The team won the first match, but then lost the final 2. Overall, Team Resistance had a GREAT day for first time robotics engineers.
A special thank you to Coaches Al Poirier and Joshua Keaton for all of their time and patience.
