On November 1st, local FIRST Lego League teams came to Milken to participate in a qualifier competition. Teams engaged in a competition called Trash Trek, where their robot attempts to compete in trash-themed challenges. In addition, the teams also present a project they design to solve a trash-related problem. Despite fierce competition and great competitors, Team 163, Second Life, ultimately took home the gold! Among the solutions to problems within the teams were a safe solution for recycling batteries, raising awareness about composting, a solar-powered plastic pollution collection boat, and many other great solutions to trash-related problems. All of the competitors blew the judges away and they’re sure to do amazing again.
There are more qualifying tournaments every weekend through November. To see the schedule, click here. You can view results from the tournament here.
