Not just going but working with The Flow
The Junior FIRST LEGO competition Saturday, Dec. 9, involved 32 teams. Each made three presentations to judges and accumulated points using their robots to complete tasks related to hydrology before entering head-to-head competition.

They improved their scores every round, coaches Crystal Henderson and Nich Lowman said, and more importantly did well in their project, design and core values presentations. Starting in September, the team built and programmed the autonomous robot. The program's goals are to spur innovation, develop teamwork and promote interest in science and technology.
