The first-ever First Lego League team of Aledo Middle School engaged the audience on Feb. 16, 2015, by presenting their learning progression of FLL robotics competition to Aledo School Board and the community.
The AMS students demonstrated their robot missions that completed tasks, and clarified that the competition does not consist solely of the robots judging and challenge. A research project with a presentation of a question, research, and problem-solving strategies are judged with a focus on collaboration and understanding of the FLL Core Values. The first-year team expressed how they attained a winning spot to advance to regional competition in Dallas, and how excited they are to continue through in the next year. AMS students were extremely honored to present at the Aledo School Board meeting and show the community what they worked towards for several months.
