Mary Queen of Angels School Takes Top Honors in Robotics Tournament

 

Students from Mary Queen of Angels Regional Catholic School in Cheektowaga earned tournament champion honors at the VEX IQ Challenge Highrise Funfest robotics tournament held May 2 at the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library in downtown Buffalo.

The tournament was played on a 4x8-foot rectangular field where two robots worked collaboratively to score points in teamwork challenge matches. Teams could also participate in two additional challenges — a Robot Skills Challenge where one robot takes the field to score as many points as possible under driver control, and the Programming Skills Challenge where one robot scores as many points as possible autonomously, without any driver inputs.

Members of the Mary Queen of Angels robotics team, under the guidance of teacher Stephany Nalley, are Joshua Bartkowiak, Jeremy Glinski, Davante Green, Adam Lanier, Matthew Riley, Susan Romance, Gabriella Smith, Alana Szumla.

“Though our STREAM Academy, our robotics students would meet every Wednesday to build their robots,” said MQA Principal MaryAlice Bagwell. “The work was very hands-on  as there were no written instructions for building the robots, and I think they did a fantastic job!” 

Mary Queen of Angels School, located at 170 Rosewood Terrace, offers a state-of-the-art Media Arts Center, hands-on science lab, and numerous clubs and extracurricular activities that allow students to explore many interests.
