The reviews and results are in from our inaugural FLL Qualifier in Pasco County this past weekend. STEM is catching on in Pasco! We saw a lot of success in the all of the new Pasco County middle school based teams that participated. We hope the First LEGO League program will expand to include some elementary teams next season as well. Because 4th and 5th graders can be tough competitors. The community team from Brandon’s Tech Playzone proved that with their young group of Techno Whizards who were awarded Tournament Champions. Team IBOTS and Terrapins Reds tied for the high score of the day, both scoring a Table Run of 305 points, a huge score at early tournament! Newcomers from Chasco Middle School, Gigabotz won the coveted FLL Core Values Award. Team IBOTS won for Robot Design. In the Project Category, Patriot Robots, from Bayonet Point MIddle, took 1st Place. Also from Bayonet Point, Patriot Robotics, were recognized with the Rising Star Award. From John Long Middle, Green Flames took home the award for FIRST Spirit, for showcasing great sportsmanship and Gracious Professionalism. Teams that advanced to Regionals were Techno Whizards, Patriot Robots, and Terrapins Red. Congratulations to everyone! We had a blast.
