HMS Robotics Team 2017 


This Champion's Award recognizes a team that embodies the FIRST LEGO League experience by fully embracing FLL’s  Core Values while achieving excellence and innovation in both the Robot Game and the Project. The team was thrilled to win the prestigious award.

FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is an international organization that encourages students to apply science, engineering, and math concepts to solve real world challenges.  As a robotics program FLL is designed to get students excited about science and technology, while teaching valuable life skills. The coaches, Ms. Rebecca McManus and Mr. Glenn Galevich, head the team that includes eighth-grade students Medha Bhimaraju, Nikhil Chandrasekar, Halee Dani, Jason Furbee, Ashley Mathew, Kabir Nagpal, Anirudh Padhy, Rahul Shah, Avyay Vedala, and Mohsin Zia. Several high school RoboRaiders and former members of the HMS team mentored the team this season.  The support and mentorship provided by Sree Kambhampati, Nirmal Sekher, Rijul Newalker, Riti Krishna, Emily Trujillo, Shreya Rastogi, and Kelsey Galevich were invaluable in guiding the team this season.  

The team will be moving on to the State Tournament at Mt. Olive High School in Flanders, NJ on December 9th.
