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.
