Six Halifax County Middle School students won two awards in the GO TEC VEX IQ Robotics Competition held at the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research in Danville April 19.
In their first year participating in the GO TEC program, things are looking bright for the HCMS team’s future.
Rather than having students compete against other schools, the competition format involved each of the 12 teams from different schools working together to score points.
William Griffith, the middle school’s GO TEC instructor, said there were benefits for the students to work together during the competition. “They were able to collaborate and get ideas from one another and plan strategies for matches. They learned more about collaboration and teamwork with individuals they were less familiar with.
