NHS brings home CRCC Inclusiveness Award

Congratulations to the middle school students of North Hampton School for winning the 2018 Inclusiveness Award at the Cyber Robotics Coding Competition this year.  At 95% participation, NHS had the highest percentage of students taking part in the coding program. Gabreilla Todaro, Laird Sullivan, Tony Piotrowski and Rourke Lee represented NHS at the in-person finals at the University of New Hampshire on Saturday, Dec. 15.  The top schools were invited to send teams of coders to this face-to-face final, where they completed in a time trialed coding challenge.

The Cyber Robotics Coding Competition is a state-wide online event to promote STEM and Coding using a gamified platform with virtual robot simulations.  By engaging students in the competitive and fun environment, they get to experience technology, software development and engineering topics in an un-intimidating and easy to use format. The competition has three phases:  Boot Camp, Qualifiers, and the in-person Finals. Throughout, students get to code to compete in fun game-like missions progressing from level to level. The missions allow students to think creatively and find their own unique solution to each challenge.
