NH robotics teams compete at world championship
A Pembroke Academy team was the first from the state to compete for the world title.
Pembroke Academy science teacher and robotics team mentor David Kelly said there were 15,000 people in attendance and when the Pembroke team “went up to the dome, I can’t imagine what it was like for Jonah and Joe.”
The competition began after last year’s world championship, with 10,000 teams from foreign countries as well as the United States competing for the right to go to the 2014 world championship.
At the world competition in April, three Trinity teams won the teamwork award: 40A Canned Ham, 40J The Black Sandwich, and 40K The Shark Bomb.
In the VEX IQ Challenge for elementary and middle school students, the St. Anthony Pack 118A team from Manchester placed 24th out of 60 teams in the elementary teamwork competition. One of the two Nashua MasterMinds teams, 10060, won the Energy Award.
