Each year VEX Robotics releases a new competitive game. This year's game involves collecting rings on goals and balancing robots, goals, and rings on a platform. The process of building and programming the robot requires teams to use innovation, teamwork, communication, creative design, and problem-solving.
Lincoln Academy's robotics team placed second in the state of Maine and earned an invitation to this year's World Championship. At the World Championship, LA will compete with and against teams from across the US and Canada as well as teams from Andora, Australia, Azerbaijan, Chile, Colombia, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom.
Our goal is $15,000. The campaign will fund these estimated expenses:
Our robotics team aims for our best, and we are thrilled with the outcome of our state competition season. Traveling to the VEX World Championship will give us the opportunity to meet other teams and experience the next level of competition in the fun and challenging world of high school robotics.
Thank you to Washburn & Doughty Associates, Masters Machine Co., LA Boosters, and the Doughty family for their leadership in funding this experience for our team.
