Students stack up smarts in Lego competition | News
It's hosted by the Georgia FIRST Lego League, a program for middle school students who are interested in science and technology. The students created robots based on a theme of weather and natural disasters.
There were 80 judges on hand to pick winning teams who demonstrated good research and technical ability.
"One of the things is gracious professionalism. It's one of the models of FIRST. We're looking for teams to work together, not only in their teams but across teams," says Executive Director of Starbase Robins, Wesley Fondal.
"I like a lot of mechanical stuff. It's right in my area and I love to compete," says Gabriel Santiago of Mossy Creek Middle School.
The top three teams will go to Atlanta to compete in the state competition.
