The CAK Middle School robotics teams competed in the FIRST Lego League.
Competitions have four components:
1. Robot game - teams design, build, and program a Lego Education robot to autonomously complete tasks on the challenge mat
2. Robot design - teams give a presentation on their robot design, strategy, and code
3. Innovation project - teams develop a solution around the challenge theme - this year was focused on Energy (production, distribution, storage, and usage)
4. Core Values - teams demonstrate teamwork and problem-solving
At the Marble City Qualifier in December, the middle school robotics teams:
Blue Team (6th Grade): Won 1st place Robot Design
Gold Team (7th/8th Grade): Won Judges Award for Engineering Excellence
Both teams qualified for the East Tennessee Championship to be held Saturday, February 11, at Tennessee Tech.
