This is our first year having a FIRST LEGO League robotics team. All teams participate in a state qualifier competition and only 5 teams from each state qualifier move on to the next level. The Elmwood Schools Trobots earned a 4th place overall rank as they competed against 14 other teams at Lindbergh School in Peoria on Saturday, December 7th. They had excellent mission table runs with their robot and their presentations included an Innovation Project about a solution for a problem in the community, a Core Values presentation, and a Robot Design presentation in front of judges. The judges awarded them the Rising Star Award- an award that judges give to new teams that they expect to see "great things" from in the future. They also earned a spot in the State Competition which will be at the end of January. We are very proud of the Trobots!
