The X-STREAM competition was an event developed from the STREAM initiative carried out by the Diocese of Buffalo.

The various Catholic schools from the Diocese of Buffalo had student representation for the different competitions that took place throughout the day.

Taking first place in the robotics competition with the highest total points was the St. Andrew’s team of seventh- and eighth-graders: Aidan Bowerman, Michael Conway, Anthony Foglia, Philip Frieary, Mariel Gatmaitan, Andrew Jeremko, Irene Killian, Alexis Lakatos, Michael Rosina and Connor Wright.

The team took first place in building the longest suspension bridge while supporting a chalkboard eraser for more than 10 seconds. Otto Johannsen, a fifth-grader, and Daniel Foglia, a sixth- grader, took first place as a team in the “Straw Egg Drop” competition.
