Last weekend, robotics teams from the middle and lower schools, both of which were launched earlier this school year, participated in separate tournaments organized by the FIRST LEGO League. Besides competing in games and challenges, FASNY students presented research-driven innovation projects as well as their robot designs. The tournaments and the weeks of preparation leading up to them proved a wonderful learning experience and great camaraderie-building exercise for the team members, bringing out the best in all.
The work of the robotics squads is far from over, as the middle school team looks forward to implementing the energy-efficiency plan it has devised for the Village campus, while the third-grade team is busy preparing to attend its first expo, in February.
