A Look Ahead: Fall/Winter 2019-20

Members of team “The Girls Are Back in Town” practiced for their FIRST LEGO League Challenge, which is a competition that engages children ages 9 to 14 in research, problem solving, coding, and engineering. Here, the girls used their iPads to write code that they uploaded to their robot via Bluetooth, and the robot then completed various missions on the board for points. The challenge required teamwork, trial-and-error, patience, and communication, and will prepare them well for USM’s FIRST Robotics team, which is open to students in grades 9 through 12.
