SparX Team for 2018:
INSPIRING Webster high school students to be Today's Leaders and Innovators
Let’s Solve Water 2018
Nine robot teams competed on October 13, 2018 in this year’s Xylem Let’s Solve Water Challenge. Teams had to design and build a laminar flow water cannon capable shooting a ~3’ slug of water into 6 buckets placed a various distances up to 25’.
Four $1000 Awards were given for:
- Most elegant design/appearance/presentation
- Fastest to hit all targets
- Longest distance
- Fastest to calibrate/hit first target
SparX Team-1126 won the Most Elegant Design Award
(note: after calibration we hit the target bucket on the first shot!)
SparX Information meeting on September 19 was attended by an ideal number of enthusiastic new students. Returning students presented what each of the sub teams do and answered questions. Some new students have Lego League experience, some knew exactly the functional team they want and others were there to check us out and see if SparX makes sense in their already busy schedule
