The Central Square Robotics Club’s VEX team, the Robo Eagles, had a huge day at the recent New York State Championships, taking home several top awards and qualifying for the VEX World Championships in Louisville, Kentucky.

VEX teams construct, program and operate modular robots to compete in a series of direct-play competitions against other teams and schools, as well as collaborate to meet objectives in a fast-paced and high-energy tournament schedule.

Students must combine technical knowledge, operational dexterity and teamwork and communication skills to reach the sport’s ultimate objective: The VEX World Championships, to be held in April.

On March 11 at the NYS Championships, the Robo Eagles were awarded the State Championship Excellence Award and also placed second in the Robot Skills Competition and by doing so, punched their ticket to Lousiville.

The Excellence Award is given to the top all-around team and includes metrics in robot performance and all judged categories.

Spencer Wells, CSRC President, said the team was “extremely excited about going back” to the World Championships, and thanked the Central Square School District and Robotics Club advisor Katrina Vant for their support.
