LHUSD Mighty Minions Robotics team takes 3rd place at State tournament
Exposing young minds to the world of science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, is essential to helping students learn how they can make an impact in the world around them. One way the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University tackles that task is through an affiliate partnership with the Arizona FIRST LEGO League since 2008.
FIRST LEGO League is a robotics competition that engages students in hands-on STEM experiences, building confidence, growing their knowledge and cultivating habits of learning. The FLL season starts in September with qualifying tournaments taking place in late November and early December culminating in the State Championship held in January at ASU.
The Mighty Minions Robotics Team attended the tournament with lofty goals, and they succeeded.
They placed 3rd Overall, which qualifies them to compete at the World Championships to be held later this school year.
