Six Junior FLL Teams Win Awards at Expo

Six MICDS Lower School teams attended the 6th Annual MICDS Jr. FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Expo on February 20. The annual event drew a record crowd to see 16 teams share what they learned about trash and recycling through the Waste Wise Challenge.

Students presented their research, working LEGO model and project poster to a panel of reviewers and peers, then moved their poster and model to the Expo area to share and see other projects. The MICDS FIRST Tech Challenge Robotics Teams were the main attraction in the Loeb Robotics Lab. The event ended with awards and high-fives.

Congratulations to the MICDS FIRST LEGO League Jr. Teams that won awards at the event:
