See FIRST Lego League Robot in Action

April 12, 2021

This year’s FIRST Lego League Robotics was a little different due to Covid restrictions.  The team of 6th and 7th graders uploaded videos of their robot performing game missions and then met with the judges virtually on Saturday, April 3.  "I am very proud of what Team 40706 accomplished this season despite the restrictions in place," says advisor Michelle Bledsoe.  The Project Team (Riley, Thatcher & Delaney) came up with a solution to this year’s challenge (“How and where can we help people be more active?”) by researching and designing a prototype for a new kind of knee brace to help those with knee injuries stay active.  The Engineering Team (Adrian, Preston, Hadley, Lindsey and Max) successfully completed four missions within the 2.5 minutes allowed for the game, ending with a final score of 175.  Here is a Video of some of their robot's missions, as well as a Photo Gallery of the teammates with their Lego creations.  Good job, Golden Dragons!
