The Newton Christian School First Lego League team will be advancing to the State competition at Iowa State University in January 2018. The team competed Saturday at the Regional FLL Competition in Ottumwa, and received the Well-Rounded Team award. The team of 10 students in fifth through eighth grade are coached by Jeff Pence, Brandon McBride and Lynne Garton.
First Lego League challenges students to think like scientists and engineers by studying real world problems. Students build and program an autonomous robot and present their research project. Team members celebrate exploration and teamwork by following the FLL Core Values.
