Robotics team ‘rocks ’em, socks ’em’ at regional bout
The Yarmouth Middle School robotics club team, The Clipperbots, sent two of only three robots from middle schools to the VEX Robotics tournament at Erskine Academy in South Paris earlier this month. The team successfully competed with 28 high school teams during the two-part tournament that included Qualifying Matches and the Alliance Elimination Tournament.
“The qualifying rounds were a learning experience for our teams, with some on-the-fly re-engineering and fine-tuning of driving skills,” team member Morgan Cuthbert said in an email. “Networking is also a big part of tournament play. One of our robots met and impressed some top teams. Our team was chosen to be part of the alliance with the third-ranked team from Thornton Academy, and was on the field for both wins in the best of three final matches, becoming a tournament champion.”
The team’s other robot, created and driven by four sixth-grade girls, stood out as well, Morgan said, adding that the team’s resilience despite a design flaw that limited their productivity was noticed by the judges. The members actually wound up dismantling their robot, cutting off a portion of the front and then reassembling it in between qualifying rounds.
“It was an amazing effort and the judges agreed, awarding the group with the tournament’s Sportsmanship Award,” Morgan said. Both teams were invited to the VEX Maine State Championship at Hampden Academy.
The Natural Resources Council of Maine has awarded grants to eight Maine middle schools, including Freeport Middle School, to fund projects that engage students in protecting Maine’s environment. Freeport Middle School students will use the grant to collaborate with Freeport Solid Waste & Recycling and Freeport Rotary to organize and initiate school-wide recycling.
