5-16-2019 Everett District Robotics Tournament
The "Nerdy NERDS" showed how "grace under pressure" works as they all worked together to try to overcome the odds as everything literally fell apart at the district tournament. This team made us proud as they kept their chin up, their enthusiasm, and their teamwork even when their little robot Yube and her attachments took a tumble and parts went flying right at game time.
Their little robot that normally could score a respectable 96 points (a 1st place sort of score), didn't manage to have a good day today, leaving the NERDS in 11th place. It is OK though- because what we saw was a team that didn't break down when the robot broke down, and that made our day!
3-11-2019 Geekwire Robotics Cup!
A huge thumbs up and congratulations to the NERDS who rocked it at the Geekwire Robotics Cup last week. The NERDS came in 6th place in the robot game AND won the TEAM SPIRIT award. This means that these NERDS are the first robotics team in North MS history to complete the trifecta by winning tournament awards in ALL THREE categories (robot, research project, and core values.) in a single year! WAY TO GO NERDS!
This was such a fun event with teams from all over Washington State. We loved meeting everyone and seeing the interesting solutions to the robot game!

- The NERDS Smarties
- The Northern Lights NERDS
- NERDS The Candy
- Rainbow NERDS
- Galaxy NERDS
- Silver Eye NERDS
- NERDS Astro Sheep Association (NASA)
