SCA Elementary Robotics Team Celebrates Win at Robotics Tournament

Lee’s Summit (MO) – The Summit Christian Academy (SCA) FIRST Lego League (FLL) robotics teams rocked in the KC FIRST qualifying competition at Bingham Middle School.  The Shockwave and Robowarriors , consisting of 5th and 6th grade students, competed against 41 other teams from around the Kansas City metro area.  Shockwave, coached by SCA Dad Ryan Harger, won the Project Award for Innovative Solution and will move on to the Kansas City Regional Competition on January 18, at Union Station.  RoboWarriors placed fourth in the robot competition.

“To have a team move on to the Regional Competition our rookie year in FLL is quite an accomplishment,” said SCA Dad and Robotics Coordinator Roger Wagy.  “To have a team that also wins the Innovative Solution Award shows how bright our SCA students are, and how they can make a meaningful difference in our world!  We believe this is God’s blessing and the green light to continue developing SCA Robotics!” 

The theme for this year’s competition was Nature’s Fury and the teams explored what can be done when intense natural events meet the places people live, work, and play.  Shockwave’s winning solution was to develop a line of wearable items, such as necklaces, wristbands, belt buckles that notify deaf and hard of hearing individuals when a warning has been sounded.

“I am proud of the team and all they accomplished at the tournament,” said Shockwave Coach Harger. “We were surprised and elated to have won the Innovative Solution Award.”
