Members of the ILMS Robotics team Robo-Lego Geek Squad won the Innovation Project Award at the First Lego League District Tournament at Wright State University.
They received their award for their robot design and strategy in the City Shaper Challenge.
“Unfortunately, our robot did not perform very well, so we did not advance to state,” Coach Jana Core said. “But I’m so glad the eighth graders on the team got to advance again for their final year.”
Eighth-graders Annie Braig and Amelia Schmiedebusch have been leaders on robotics teams that made it to district level competitions three different years. Other members of the Robo-Lego Geek Squad are Meya Karbowiak, Titus Kelly, KaiLea Miller and Landon Wisener. They are coached by Core and Honda Transmission Manufacturing Engineer Joe Pietrykowski.
ILMS Robotics teams are sponsored and supported by Honda Transmission Manufacturing.
