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).
