FIRST Lego League State Championship

The FIRST Lego League State Championship, which is the culminating event of months of hard work, was held January 24 at the University of Idaho.  Thirty-two teams from all over North Idaho converged in Memorial Gym at the University of Idaho to compete in 4 areas:  robot design, core values, FLL project, and robot game.  The theme for the project and robot game this year, which was entitled "World Class', focused on developing new ideas for better ways to learn.  In the robot game, teams design and program Lego robots with the NXT or EV3 microprocessor "brain"; these robots conquer missions on the FLL table to score the most total points.  North Idaho STEM Charter Academy teams were shining during the awards by taking home three trophies, including the top two championship awards for the entire event.  The teamwork trophy was awarded to Team 2; the second place champion trophy was earned by the "Ice Cream Vendorz" team, and the Grand Champion trophy was awarded to the "1980's Something Space Guys" team.
