MO’ Peeps Competes At 2017 VEX World Championship

Carman-Ainsworth Middle School’s robotics teams topped off an overwhelmingly successful rookie season with an appearance at the 2017 VEX World Championship in Louisville, Kentucky.

MO’ Peeps, Team 1375A, finished 24th out of 80 teams in the Opportunity Division. Even MO’ Peeps, Team 1375B, finished 44th out of 80 teams in the Spirit Division. In total, the 160 middle school teams represented more than 30 countries.

Throughout the tournament, the Carman-Ainsworth teams were paired with alliance partners from the United States, Colombia, China, Singapore and Russia.

Even though the two teams did not advance beyond the division qualifying rounds, they held their own against some of the top teams in the world. In fact, Team 1375B beat eventual world champion Team 8193D from China during the qualifying rounds.

The Carman-Ainsworth teams qualified for the world championship by winning the Michigan VEX state championship in February. During their rookie season in VEX, the two teams amassed a total of 17 awards, including several overall tournament victories.

C-A Robotics Competes AT FIRST World Championship

Carman-Ainsworth FRC (FIRST Robotics Competition®) Team 314 completed a successful season with an appearance in the FIRST® Championship from April 26-29 in St. Louis, Missouri. Team 314, also known as Big MO, was one of 407 teams from around the world that competed in the event at Edward Jones Dome and America’s Center.

Team 314 competed in Darwin division, which included 68 teams, playing in 10 qualifying matches with two other alliance partners.

The team ended the qualifying rounds with a 4-6 record, ranking 39 out of 68 teams, with 1.5 ranking points and 3,095 match points. However, the record and ranking did not tell the real story about Team 314 and their robot. When individually evaluated, Team 314 was in the Top 10 for offense, defense and calculated contribution to win margin, key metrics other teams considered when making a run for the championship.

As a result, Team 314 was selected first pick by the 3rd Alliance Captain, Team 1305 Ice Cubed, from North Bay, Ontario. We then chose Team 48 Delphi E.L.I.T.E, from Warren, Ohio, and Team 2370 IBOTS, from Rutland, Vermont, to partner with us in the elimination rounds.

The alliance won the divisional quarterfinal but was eliminated by the No. 2 alliance in the semifinals.

That said, the chance to compete on an international level, to make new friends from around the world and to reunite with old friends was outstanding.  The best overall part of this journey was seeing the students design, build, program and compete with a robot that impressed competitors, judges and fans throughout the season. The students not only applied their technical skills but also honed their abilities to work as a team, solve problems and compete with gracious professionalism.

Marvelous News from the Instrumental Music Department!

(And, a way You can make a difference!)

An anonymous donor has given a substantial contribution to the Kyle Hart Fund in memory and honor of Marion Lage, and her significant contribution to education and her support of the C/A music program. This surprise gift comes at a time when our instrument inventory is in desperate need of updating and replenishing. The donation equates to approximately 30 gently used instruments for students here at C/A. We invite you to consider helping us raise funds for an additional 30 instruments. (The average cost of a gently used instrument is $250).

Thank you in advance of your consideration. No donation is too small or too large when you are helping a child.

If you would like to help make a difference in this way, please use this form and send to Sue Miller at Randels Elementary, 6022 Brobeck Street; Flint, MI 48532.

Volunteers Needed at Dye Elementary

The last few months of the school year hold many challenges for the teachers and staff responsible for all of the fun end-of-year activities we do! The color run, the track meet, field day; these are some of the special things our students will always remember.

We need help from our parents and grandparents!

There will be a sign up sheet in the office starting April 19th for anyone that has a few hours to help with one of the above mentioned days.

It could be as easy as handing out popsicles, helping to supervise a three-legged race, or just helping to tie a little ones shoes!

Please be a part of our extended Dye Family!
