Robotics Lego Competition
Academy of Our Lady recently hosted the FIRST Lego League Qualifying Tournament for middle school teams. Seven teams from the New Orleans area participated. The teams had judging rounds to assess their Robot Design, their Project and Presentation and their adherence to the FIRST Core Values. The teams also participated in robot performance matches, in which their robots earned points by completing assigned missions on a tabletop playing field. Based on performance, four teams advanced to the state championship on December 5. The Academy of Our Lady Robotics team has a mission to reach out to younger engineers. They are currently part of the FIRST Tech Challenge and the FIRST Robotics Challenge.
