After competing for two seasons in the First Lego League, the McClure Middle School Robotics Team secured a spot at the Georgia FIRST Lego League State Championship held at Georgia Gwinnett College.
In addition to earning an opportunity to compete at the state robotics tournament, McClure also won trophies for “Core Values” in the regional competition and “Best Design” in the Super regional competition.
About 15 students make up the McClure Robotics team, known by their team name the Modular Mavericks.
The Modular Mavericks competed against 60 schools at the state tournament February 4.
“We are so proud of these students in their second year of competition making it to the state finals,” said McClure Principal Kelly Metcalfe. “Their commitment and teamwork shone throughout this season, and we look forward to even greater things from them in the future!”
