Quality Award, FIRST North Shore District Event - 2015
The Quality Award was presented to us in the form of a poem:
This team is not afraid to “tweet.”
The judges think it’s sweet.
But it takes a solid robot to win this award.
Good planning and design lead to high points scored.
When this team hit the floor, it grew loud.
Their “Scorpion” mode pleased the crowd.
Securing the Quality award is not just a wish
If you base your decisions on a bird eating a fish!
Congratulations to Team 246!

Winner, FIRST Boston Regional – 2012
Chairman's Award, FIRST Boston Regional - 2012
The Chairman’s Award was presented to us in the form of a poem:
From members to mentors, this team has it together,
A third of the school can attest that it’s better,
To join the FIRST team than to do like “whatever”,
They rock the block with robots at the museum,
The kids all lit up when they got to see them,
They had zest for Greenfest eco-friendly bulbs in their lab,
And reached out to girls to try science in Cambridge,
They launched an experiment in a padded flying cavity,
To test science theories by altering gravity,
For new teams in Boston your chances are better,
Because they are there with money and mentors,
Outside of the hub they are beginning to see,
The powerful force a FIRST team can be,
If you come from afar, this team will assist you,
With shipping and storing, the least they can do,
To a far land they sent a filter for water,
To make drinking safe for global sons and world daughters,
With the virtues of FIRST they are clearly well stocked,
So let’s give it up for Boston’s own Overclocked!
Congratulations to the regional Chairman’s Award winner, Team 246!
FIRST Website Excellence Award – 2012
Chairman's Award, FIRST Boston Regional - 2011
”The Chairman’s Award honors the team that ‘best represents a model for other teams to emulate, and which embodies the goals and purpose of FIRST’. It remains FIRST’s most prestigious award.”
This award was presented to us in the form of this poem:
“This team has gone big and has outreach and ideals,
they helped other teams make FIRST dreams become real.
With mentors and kids from closeby and afar,
their many good deeds make this team who they are.
Their work spreads worldwide,
they have sponsors galore,
they have spirit and drive,
they can’t be ignored.
They are hard to describe while still making this rhyme,
but most simply put, they’ve worked overtime,
because they’re OVERCLOCKED!”
