Cortland Purple Tigers Shine at Regional Lego League Competition

A team of students from Cortland Purple Tigers earned
a second place finish out of 22 teams at the recent Regional Lego League Competition held at Onondaga-Cortland-Madison Board of Cooperative Educational Services (OCM BOCES). The team, composed of CJSHS students, competed against teams from across the region in a series of challenges that tested their problem-solving, engineering, and teamwork skills. The students worked hard in the weeks leading up to the competition, and their efforts paid off with a strong performance on the day of the event. The Cortland Purple Tigers team was led by coach Jonathan Herr, who praised the students for their hard work and dedication. "I'm so proud of the way these students represented our school and community," said Mr. Herr, "They worked hard, they never gave up, and they achieved great things." The Lego League Competition is an annual event that challenges students to use their creativity and problem-solving skills to design, build, and program robots that can complete a series of tasks. The competition also encourages students to learn about real-world problems and to develop solutions that can make a difference in their communities. The Cortland Purple Tigers team's second-place finish is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the students and their coach. The team's success is also a reflection of the strong STEM education program at Cortland Purple Tigers.
