Robotics Team

Our Team competed in Sidney, NE on January 20th with 16 other teams who battled the clock while remembering Gracious Professionalism. Seven of those 16 teams were successful. Our Team was invited to join other teams at The Nebraska Robotics Expo February, 17th, 2018 at the Strategic Air Command Aerospace Museum in Ashland, NE. We will be working the concessions stand this coming Tuesday, January 30th, at the basketball games beginning at 3:00 PM to defray the cost of our trip. Please consider supporting us while you enjoy great Mexican Food!

Jr. Robotics Team

On Saturday, January 20, 2018, the Hay Springs Jr. Robotics Team made their official debut in Sidney, NE. The team, launched in October 2017, has been following the FIRST LEGO League Jr. Curriculum. This program, in conjunction with 4-H, introduces kids ages 6-10 to STEM concepts. This year’s theme was AQUA ADVENTURE. The teams learned Core Values of the program, conducted research, utilized Engineering Notebooks, voted on team names, selected real-world water problems to tackle, engineered and built LEGO models to solve their problems, programmed moving parts to include in their models, and managed to have fun in the process! The teams compiled their hard work and ideas on “Show Me” Posters which were presented along with their LEGO builds at the showcase in Sidney.

Hay Springs had three of the seven teams participating in the Junior Division. It was remarkable to see our school represented in such an impressive manner. This was the first expo experience for all involved. The kids did an amazing job presenting and answering the judge’s questions. The parents and family members that made the trip completed this awesome positive experience. The dedication and support of so many individuals made this “experiment” possible!

The “RoboKids” team consisted of Riggen Binger, Jacob Dorshorst, Cora Summers and Catherine Two Bulls. The “RoboHawks” team consisted of Luke Edwards, Brayden Heiting, Cade McKillip and Easton Mintken. The “Smartie Hawks” team consisted of Emma Albrecht, Mason Albrecht, Megan Anderson, Will Gaswick and Devyn Young. The teams were coached by Melissa Mracek and Erika Gaswick. Many thanks to Miriam Kearns and the “big” robotics team for visiting with us and showing us what our future may hold. Thanks also to Aaron Taylor for speaking to our group about our water and it’s journey.
