A team of students from Indian Township School attended the 4-H Robotics Expo at the University of Maine at Machias on Saturday, March 16.  The competition was held for students in grades four to eight.  Our Science Teacher, David Finlay helped the students get ready through a science class for fourth grade and an after school program for our eighth graders.  This was the second year for attending this event.  Twenty-eight schools, reaching from Canada to Old Town, attended the event.

Students competed as two teams.  Team one consisted of Hunter Libby with the help of Dylan Newell.  Though Dylan was unable to attend, Hunter was victorious in the “Challenge Event,” winning a first place trophy.  Hunter successfully moved a robot through a maze to cover a flashlight with a bowl.  Hunter programmed the robot which was built by Dylan.  The other team was a rookie team of fourth graders including Alannah Barnes, Malleah Brown, Aaliyah Dana, Tony Dana, Nicole Nicholas, and Paige Sockabasin.  They competed in the “Awesome Kids” event which was specifically tailored for first year participants.

Mr. Finlay would like to especially thank the turn out of parents to the event.  Their support was greatly appreciated.
