First in Robot Design, Bolles qualifies for regionals

The Bolles Middle School Bartram Campus robotics team won the Robot Design Award at the First Lego League tournament, held Jan. 10 at Susie E. Tolbert Elementary School. One of the top-scoring teams of 16 competing schools, Bolles also qualified for the regional tournament.

“We are very proud of this team,” said Mark Meyers, Bolles Middle School Computer teacher and team coach. He said students, who call themselves ‘The B Team,’ worked many hours during school, after-school, on weekends and during holiday break to complete a research project and presentation included in the overall tournament competition. “They did their research on campus and in their free time.”

Bolles offers a robotics club, which meets monthly and is open to all students in addition to the team, which is a small group of experienced robotics students who compete in First Lego League tournaments.
The Bolles Middle School Robotics Team members include 8th graders Charu Chaturvedi, Charlie Davis, Nick Divita, Yash Gulani, Rishi Misra and Blake Perdikis, and 7th graders Colby Newman and Adam Pooley.
