The BFCCPS Robotics has been hard at work since this summer.  Over the weekend the Gearminds Team competed at the First Lego League Regional competitions at WPI and was selected for the upcoming States Championship on December 16th.
Gearminds was one of the 11 teams among 40 to receive the Golden ticket to the States. The team was  selected based on their consistent show in Robotic matches, excellent Project presentation and teamwork during the Instant Challenge. They competed against some of the best teams in New England and placed 4th overall in Robot matches, and won a special jury award for Core Values which reflects the Character Education built here at BFCCPS.
The BFCCPS First Lego League Middle School team GEARMINDS is comprised of 7th and 8th grade students and is mentored by BFCCPS Alumni and one current Grade 8 student.  The Elementary school training team attended the regional competition and have been inspired with the good ring side view of the matches and the team’s achievement.
Many thanks to the parent volunteers Mr. Ramesh Balan and Mrs. Upasana Pendkar who have coordinated team practices to make this competition possible for our students !
