Cushing Robotics Victorious in Hopkinton

On Saturday, Dec. 9, Varsity Robotics took home a well-earned victory in the Vex Robotics qualifying championship in Hopkinton, Mass., and earned the Academy's first-ever trip to the regional finals. The Southern New England Championship will be held at Quinsigamond Community College on March 3 and 4, 2018. Cushing will be one of 100 other qualifying teams trying to make it to the Vex World Championship, which is held in Kentucky.
The 12 current members of Cushing Robotics have been preparing for the Hopkinton competition since school began in September. The seven members of the Varsity Robotics team have all participated in the program for several terms throughout their Cushing careers. Five of the seven are seniors.

Every year a different challenge is released by VEX Robotics and the students have to design and build their robot to score as many points as possible in the game. This year, the game was called “In the Zone”.
