After a majority of the members of Team Inconceivable!, Monadnock 4-H Robotics Club FRC Team 1729, volunteered to help set up the FIRST Robotics Competition Southern NH District event held at Bedford High School March 16-17, the team fought long and hard to complete their qualification matches in fifth place.

After being selected to compete with the second placed team from John Stark Regional High School and Hopkinton Middle High School, OzRam Robotics Team 1922, and joined by another selected partner from Groton- Dunstable HS, the GD Robotomies Team 1277, the alliance went through the grueling 8 elimination matches to finish the weekend’s competition as finalists (runner-up).

Team Inconceivable! was also awarded the prestigious Engineering Inspiration Award. This award celebrates outstanding success in advancing respect and appreciation for engineering within a team’s organization and community.

Because Team Inconceivable! has won this award they will now advance to the New England District Championship being held at WPI in Worcester, Massachusetts on April 11-13.

During its Monadnock first competition of 2019 at Salem High School, 4-H Robotics Club, FIRST Robotics Competition Team 1729 of Peterborough, ranked 10th in New England District. They competed in their final matches with the Bishop Guertin High School robotics team, Team 811 and the rookie robotics team from White Mountains Regional High School, Team 7907. During this exciting weekend, the team received a Judges’ Award. Students spoke with Commissioner of Education Frank Edelblut and Dr. Woodie Flowers, who is the Pappalardo Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a Distinguished Partner at Olin College.
