Our First Lego League Challenge Team – the Warriors – participated in a local robotics qualifier hosted by Bishop Foley HS and the Foley Freeze team on November 20th. All registered FIRST LEGO League teams in Michigan are eligible to compete in only one Michigan qualifying event each season. Warriors finished with a #9 placement, and while not high enough to advance to further championship competition, we’re so proud of their hard work and excellence.
In the “core values” interviews, the team did well in their discussions of discovery, innovation, impact and fun, and will continue practicing their inclusion and teamwork. The judges were impressed with the students’ understanding of diversity, given they are a team that has come together from different schools through a rec center program, and often compete against school-funded teams and programs.
