Larne Elementary is excited to announce its inaugural FIRST LEGO League team for the 2018-2019 season. The FIRST LEGO League team researches a real world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc. and try to find a solution. They must design, build, and program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS, then compete on a table top playing field. The theme this year is "Into Orbit". The students will be tasked with 15 potential challenges that they must choose from. Not all of the challenges can be completed so the team has to choose wisely based on difficulty and/or points. Larne's first competition will be the regional competition at Gaffney High School on November 17, 2018. The competition is based not only on competition but on team work, creativity, and the ability to present problem solving skills to the judges. Team advisors are Rachel Hester, Jennifer Johnson, Kelly Nellums, and Mike Pearson.
Congratulations to the following students for being selected for the team:
