Sacred Heart School’s first ever LEGO League team competed and won in the Downriver Robot Rescue competition on Sat. Nov. 23 at Allen Park Middle School. 

The competition was a qualifying tournament in the international FIRST LEGO League, a robotics and research program designed to get students aged 9-14 excited about science and technology and how they apply to real world problems, according to the school

Sacred Heart's team, The Awesome Autobots, will advance to the FLL State Southeast Championship that will take place Dec. 7 at Monroe High School in Monroe, MI.

This year’s FLL Challenge is titled “Nature’s Fury”. As part of the tournament, the group of 4th graders designed and programmed an autonomous robot to complete various rescue missions on a LEGO game table.

They also researched how severe weather and natural disasters can affect their community, and proposed a solution to severe weather conditions, which they will share with others, the report said.

“FIRST LEGO League competition is not about just playing with LEGOs,” said Awesome Autobot member Alec Koscielniak. “It is a lot of work, but you learn a lot and also have a lot of fun!”

It is wonderful that what they are doing will help increase their knowledge of science and technology and how to apply them to real world problems. Sounds like a wonderful bunch of kids, and we should be proud they are from our very own Sacred Heart.
