Hamady’s Robotics team wins

Hamady High School joined teams from across the world as they competed in their initial FIRST Robotics Competition in Mason, Michigan. The Hamady team brought home the "Rookie of the Year" award. 

The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is an international high school robotics competition. Each year, teams of high school students, coaches, and mentors work during a six-week period to build game-playing robots. As part of the competition in Mason, each team had to build a robot according to a particular theme. Hamady built their robot as a defensive robot, designed to prevent other teams from scoring. 

Hamady High School Principal, Leslie Key, tells us, “Our young people did very well and we're excited about the event. It was a great competition." 

During the six-week build period, the students learned about assembly, electric work, and coding to create a wireless robot. Volunteer coach, Lester Fykes, devoted countless hours to help the team succeed. Students who participate benefit from overnight trips, meeting students from around the state, and scholarship opportunities.
