ESD Robotics Wins Second Place at FIRST LEGO League Challenge Regional Championship

Having advanced from over 300 teams in their regional qualifiers earlier this semester, 60 teams competed in the FIRST LEGO League Challenge Regional Championship last weekend. Among those 60 teams was ESD's seventh-grade team: The Rockafires. After a weekend full of challenges, the team was awarded Second Place in Robot Design!

FIRST LEGO League introduces science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to children through fun, hands-on learning, providing real-world problem-solving experiences through a guided, global robotics program. Students engage in hands-on STEM experiences, building confidence, growing their knowledge, and developing habits of learning. As part of the LEGO Challenge, teams engage in research, problem-solving, coding, and engineering – building and programming a LEGO robot that navigates the missions of a robot game. They also participate in a research project to identify and solve a relevant real-world problem.
