Tech Goes Home
Parents, students and Teachers work together.
There are many out there who have questioned what our robotics is about. I always answer it's not about the robots, but so much more. I think this video will help to clarify what I mean and cannot put into words.
Congratulations to the M.E.R.I.T. Club team 36378 The SHARKS. They competed on Saturday February 10th, 2018 at the New Mexico FIRST LEGO League Regional Championship event.
This group of amazing MQE students finished 15th our of the 36 teams representing New Mexico and Colorado. While they did not bring home an award, they improved in all judging areas and were invited back to present their project idea, turning Gray water into Green Gardens, for a second panel of judges. I have coached FLL teams for the past five years, and this was the best performing group at such an event. They were under tons of pressure, and worked late into the night before the competition to fine tune their project, but maintained their composure and treated everyone at the event with respect and dignity. Thank you for the opportunity to coach these young student in this year's HydroDynamics Challenge.
On behalf of our club, I would like to thank the following sponsors for their contributions to our FLL program. Without their generosity the amazing accomplishments of our club would not have been possible.
Dominguez Farms and Dairies Inc.

This season our little school had three teams participate in the Las Cruces Qualifier. As usual this is a very long day filled with excitement and stress. The students did well with The Deep Sea Mermaids taking 1st place in the Robot Design category and the Sharks taking 2nd place in the Robot Design category, a clean sweep for that category!
The RAMPIRE team finished their first season as a part of the FIRST LEGO League (FLL) strong!
At the Las Cruces qualifier they not only took First place in the Robot Game, but also received the 2nd place Champion's Award .
They went on to compete at the regional event in Albuquerque where they finished 13th overall. Not bad for the first year of the program.
