GSA Middle School Robotics Teams Starting the Season Strong

On Saturday, November 5th, the GSA 6th, 7th, and 8th grade teams headed to Reeds Spring, MO (just outside of Branson) for what was the first competition for many and just another notch in the belt for others. The teams joined other elementary and middle school students from across the state to show off their skills. Many teams were focused on removing the disks from the towers, some were prepared to score the disks into the respected point zones, while only a few brave teams attempted to reach into the bonus contact zone. If you would like to view this years challenge, please see the introduction video here: VEX IQ Competition: Slapshot | 2022 - 2023 Game 

There will be many more successes to share throughout the season. Our next competition will be held in Kirkwood, MO on December 10th. Our teams will be reflecting, updating designs, and building until then. Keep your eye on the newsletter to stay up to date on this and many other great things going on here at GSA!!

The results for GSA are:

  • Kermit Crafters and Dragon Hunters took the 1st place by becoming the Teamwork Champions
  • Dragon Hunters won Driving Skills award
  • Einsteins won Excellence award
  • The Legacy Coderz took 3rd Place
