WHBI Vex IQ teams qualify for states

This is the first year WHBI has competed in the Vex IQ competitions (previously WHBI competed in Lego Robotics) under the advisement of Karen Bailey (fifth grade math/science teacher).

On Saturday, Jan. 18, both fourth and fifth grade teams had a spectacular showing at their first Vex IQ tournament in Liverpool, NY. Both teams walked away with several awards, earning them a spot in the state tournament at the end of February.

  • 16 teams competed in this event with grade levels from fourth through eighth grade.
  • Queensbury schools had the only fourth and fifth grade teams.
  • Queensbury schools won four of the five possible awards given to the teams.
  • One of the judges mentioned to another judge how amazing the Queensbury teams were in attitude and spirit (our Spartatude values).
