The LCS Robotics program is a newer program, currently offered to Lower School students. With the success of the program in its first year, we hope to expand the Robotics program to Middle School as well!
On Saturday, March 3rd, 2018, the LCS Robotics Team competed at the Vex IQ Ringmaster Maryland State Championship and won the highest award, The Excellence Award! This award is given to the team that exemplifies overall excellence in building a quality robotics program. This team excelled in many areas and were a shining example of dedication, devotion, hard work and teamwork. This award has qualified them for a spot at the Vex Worlds Championship this April! At the Worlds Competition, Robotics teams from all over the United States will be competing in addition to teams from the countries of China, Canada, Puerto Rico, Philippines, Hong Kong, South Korea, New Zealand, and Finland. What an accomplishment in this first year team. This elementary aged team only began working together last August and has continued to do amazing things together.
While this is an extremely exciting opportunity that awaits them, this team will now unexpectedly be traveling with their families to Louisville, KY, at the end of April to compete over a 4 day period. Registration for their team is $975 plus the additional expenses of travel and lodging over those 4 days. Anticipated costs will exceed $1,000 per family. Please prayerfully consider partnering with these parents by making a donation to help offset their costs. All donations made payable to Liberty Christian School for this Robotics team are tax-deductible. You can submit a donation directly to the school by cash or check, or with a credit card by paying online. Please reference “Robotics Worlds Competition” along with your donation. All donations will be equally distributed amongst the families to assist with registration and travel.
