Celebrating Success: Cold Spring Robotics Teams Shine at State Championships

Two of Cold Spring School’s robotics teams are gearing up to attempt to add to the school’s 37 state and national trophies when they compete in the VEX Robotics World Championship next month.

These elementary school teams are advancing to the world championship after showcasing their talents at the Indiana Robotics State Championships on March 23 at Lucas Oil Stadium.  Seven teams from Cold Spring participated in the championships.

“We are extremely proud of all of our students for their hard work and determination this year,” Cody Stipes, chief operating officer for Cold Spring School, said. “For all seven of our teams to qualify for the state tournament this year was a huge accomplishment, and to have multiple teams represent Cold Spring at the VEX World Robotics Championships is just amazing.”

The VEX Robotics World Championship, presented by the Northrop Grumman Foundation and the REC Foundation, is set to take place from April 25-27  at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas. 

“As we prepare to embark on this thrilling journey to the VEX Robotics World Championship, our entire school will rally behind Team E and Team G, cheering them on as they showcase Cold Spring’s commitment to innovation, teamwork, and excellence on the global stage.”

At the state tournament, Team E received the Jack Klein Memorial Judge’s Award, which honors a former Sidener Academy student who passed away after a battle with Lymphoma. The award is given to a team that shows growth, sportsmanship, and a true love for robotics. Team E was the only elementary team in the state to receive this honor, qualifying them for the VEX World Robotics Championship.

Team G received the Innovate Award, which is presented to a team with the most effective and efficient robot design process. Team G was the only elementary team in the state to receive this award, qualifying them for the VEX World Robotics Championship.
