RKYHS STEM Students Compete in Hackathon/Robotics Tournament

Seven RKYHS students attended the first ever yeshiva high school multi-day hackathon at Kohelet in Philadelphia. The two RKYHS teams competed with six other teams from four other schools to solve a prompt and design and build an application that reflected their solution. They were tasked with building an app that can be used when the Beit Hamikdash is rebuilt, to help people acclimate to one of the many aspects of Jewish life that we don’t have today. The teams were creative and professional while coding and developing presentations for 12 hours a day and were recognized for the best user interface and most creative solutions. The RKYHS team was the only team to have female members.

A team of students from the RKYHS Robotics Club traveled to New York for a robotics competition sponsored by CIJE (Center for Initiatives in Jewish Education) and the Teach Coalition. The competition took place in the Fort Washington Armory in New York, with over 500 students from all around the country in attendance from 32 schools, putting 102 robots to the test. The RKYHS Robotics Club meets twice a week and has been working hard to build, design and code a robot that can pile rings into baskets, and then move those baskets into the goal zone. The RKYHS team proudly took home third place overall!
