McKinley team beats odds to win Robotics award

They call themselves "the little team that could." Students from the William McKinley Preparatory High School recently won the Judges Award at the Boston FIRST Regional Robotics Competition in recognition of their unusual success as first-time competitors and their “we can do it” attitude. Despite being rookies and having the smallest team, the McKinley students advanced all the way to the quarter-finals. McKinley was among 16 BPS schools/teams to compete at Boston FIRST. The Boston Latin School/Brookline High School team, along with Quincy High School and Clinton High School, went on to compete in the national finals. Pictured here are McKinley teammates Daniel Brito, Jonathan Jaimes, and Travis Velasquez.
