The Niwot High School team Nao (pronounced Now) or Never took home the grand prize at the recent Nao Challenge USA competition sponsored by Aldebaran, the makers of the charming, shin-sized bot, through a partnership with Longmont’s Innovation Center. Held at the Longmont Museum on June 27, the competition drew six teams, with only one team representing Niwot. In addition to bragging rights, Gabe Hyde, Alex Arnold and Ben Randall took home a Nao bot for their school valued at $5,000 (which retails for $9,500). They also won a Lucite trophy, which will be showcased in the display case of honor at NHS in the fall. The boys will be juniors in the fall.
