The team sport for future innovators
North Shore Elementary S.T.E.A.M Director, Dr. Carol Smyth, said “Congratulations! We received the results of the Wonder League Robotics Competition. While all of our North Shore teams participated with enthusiasm and diligence, three Sea Cliff School teams did exceptionally well! Two of the teams in Sea Cliff School received all of the points for each mission. To achieve this, the Wonder Workshop team went through the top scores based on the quality of code that was submitted. They looked for smart use of algorithms and sensors, efficient and clean code, and creative problem solving.” Originally, 10 teams from all three North Shore Elementary schools entered the Wonder League Robotics Competition.
Teacher and advisor Mary Hill added, “Our two Sea Cliff School teams will move on to the Perfect Score Round. 414 teams will be competing globally on 2 levels (ages 6-8 and 9-12) and only 180 teams around the world (in the 9-12 bracket) have achieved this high recognition in the competition.” She said, “Moving forward our teams will be required to complete the Bamboo Hullabaloo mission, the science journal, and the introductory video to qualify. The mission for our students is to write code that will enable Dash to drop two ping pong balls into two cups out of three.”
