On Sunday, the Diocese of Buffalo’s hosted its annual X-STREAM games competition at St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute. The X-STREAM Games is an opportunity for Catholic elementary schools within the Diocese of Buffalo to compete against one another to see who can use science, technology, engineering, art, religion and math to the greatest advantage. The DeSales Robotics team, comprised of 13 students in grades 4 through 8, began planning, building, and coding their robots in February. This past weekend’s competition required the students to build robots that could complete specific tasks earning the teams’ points for each completed challenge. Out of 24 competing teams, the three teams of DeSales Knights earned 1st, 2nd and 3rd place honors and received the Vex IQ Excellence award. The Excellence award is given to the team who demonstrates overall excellence in all components of the VEX IQ Challenge. It is the most prestigious award in a VEX IQ competition. All three of this year’s Robotics teams were coached by volunteers, Mrs. Carolyn Manning and Mrs. Jennifer Farmer.

 Robotics is just one of the many great enrichment programs offered at DeSales.
