Wed 12-11-2019

(Estherville)-- Iowa Lakes Community College in Estherville hosted the 7th annual First Lego League Regional Qualifying Competition this past Saturday. Three local teams will advance to compete in the championship at Iowa State University in January, 2020.

The topic this year is “city shaper”. Teams develop solutions for specific problems with a building or public space in the community and build a LEGO robot to complete various missions.

The teams that will advance to the championship round are Lego Clashers, Spencer Inventors-Pi and the PROBOTS. That team will also advance to the state level to compete in the Global Innovation competition.

Each of the five teams that competed in Saturday's regional competition earned one or more awards.

The FIRST LEGO League is an international program designed to excite students about science, technology engineering and math, or STEM.
