Students Compete In Lego Robotics Tournament
Students from all over Florida competed in a robotics competition at Forest High School in Ocala Saturday.
There were 24 teams at the competition. The teams were from Gainesville, Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Ocala, Daytona Beach and Lake City.
The project was to come up with Lego robots that would help resolve challenges in transportation.
Organizers said this forum is good for students, who want to express their science and technology ability.
"We're gonna have a good spirit about what we do here," Director Joe Moseley said. "It's about building children up and giving them an opportunity to do well."
The Lego League Robotics Tournament is held across the U.S. and in 36 countries. The top qualifying teams from Saturday's event will move on to regionals.
