In its first year of competition, Teasley Elementary’s third grade Robot Warriors Robotics team is one of 16 teams finishing highest in the FIRST Lego League Super Regionals last month at Southern Polytechnic State University. FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) challenges students in elementary and middle schools to compete in the areas of: robot design, programming, team collaboration, and a research project presentation. Teasley’s team created a Lego biomedical device that would allow people who suffer from retinal detachment to see. The Robot Warriors took home the top award, plus 2nd place for Core Values and the Judges’ Rising Star Award. They will advance to the state competition this weekend at Georgia Tech.
