WTCS’ FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Team, the Trinity Technicians, will be participating in the Minot Regional Qualifier at Minot State University on Saturday, January 12th.
“With adult Coaches to guide them, FIRST® LEGO® League teams (up to 10 members in grades 4-8) apply science, engineering, and math concepts, plus a big dose of imagination, to develop solutions to real-world challenges. They also design, build, and program LEGO MINDSTORMS®-based robots to perform autonomous ‘missions’ on a playing field. Along the way, they develop critical thinking, team-building, and presentation skills.”
In the morning, teams are judged in three areas: project presentation, core values, & robot design. In the afternoon, 13 robotics teams compete against each other in space-themed missions. The top three teams from the day move on to the North Dakota FLL State Championship Tournament in Grand Forks in February.
The Trinity Technicians would like to thank team sponsors: AE2S & the North Dakota Society of Professional Engineers-Chapter 5. We appreciate your support as the team grows!
