The St. Mark Robotics Team participated in the Robotics Extravaganza at Seattle Prep on Saturday, May 3rd. Sixth graders, Chris Jensen and Sammy Gallagher, represented the team in a 9.4 minute challenge and won. Their on-the-spot programming and build performed the task better than 19 other competitors. They were joined at the extravaganza by teammate Connor Hogle. In addition, at the end of the event, St. Mark won the drawing for a brand new LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 robot which they can use next year at the regional competition. Congratulations!
This is our fifth year of Robotics Team which will compete through the First Lego League. Cost is $30 to cover materials and tournament fees. The team meets on Fridays beginning in early September. There is a limit of 10 students allowed on the team going to competition, but we are happy to accommodate others who are interested in learning more about robotics. Contact David Hogle (425-744-7292) if you are interested in this exciting opportunity.
