Woodstock Elementary School’s robotics team members placed at State competition!

The team placed first in Core Values for Team Work at the First Lego League State Competition held on Saturday at Georgia Tech. The team will be recognized by the Cherokee County School Board and Superintendent of Schools at the Feb. 15 School Board meeting.

The team qualified for State by placing first in Robot Design and earning a 100% on its Core Values presentation at the First Lego League Super Regionals competition.

In First LEGO League competition, each team designs and builds a robot based on the LEGO Mindstorms system. The robots are designed and then programmed by the team to solve a set of missions, which are laid out on a First LEGO League playing field with models made from LEGO bricks. Each team also completes a research project affiliated with the tournament theme (this year’s is Hydro Dynamics), where they research and analyze a problem. Awards are given for Robot Design, Core Values, Robot Performance, and Project.
