Middle School Robotics Team Advances

The Knights who Say 'Ni,' one of Barstow's three middle school LEGO robotics teams, advanced to  FIRST Robotics League regionals during a competition at Olathe Northwest on Saturday, Nov. 19. 
Coached by faculty members Erin Thornburgh and Amanda Lea, the team will compete again at Crown Center in January.

Two other middle school teams also competed at the event. All three teams practice weekly at IDEA Space, and benefit from the mentorship of experienced upper school students who are leaders on Barstow's award-winning FIRST Robotics Team 1939. More than 35 students and coaches represented Barstow at the competition.
