Central Park Captures VexIQ Robotics Judges Award!
Posted by: T Dosch Published: 2/12/18

Central Park STEAM Robotics Team 3rd Graders traveled to Quarry Lane School in Dublin, CA where they captured the VexIQ Ringmaster Judges Award.


Our students competed against 19 other teams from Sacred Heart School (Saratoga), Sandpiper Elementary School (Redwood City), Quarry Lane School (Dublin), Dublin Robotics Club (Dublin), Davis Youth Robotics (Davis), and EA Robot Club (Pleasanton).


This was a fantastic comeback after our Chameleons finished in last place at COIL Charter School in January of 2018. After that setback plus another finish in second-to-last place, the team was asked what they had learned at Central Park about handling failures. One of our 3rd graders replied, "Mrs. Oyola says that mistakes are gifts."


And with that, our resilient robotics team members put on their growth mindset and made another attempt finishing in 6th out of 31 teams in Skills Challenges this past Saturday (February 10th) at Sacred Heart School in Saratoga. Then they brought home the Judges Award at Quarry Lane School in Dublin on Sunday (February 11th).
