FIRST LEGO League Team Moves on to District Tournament

At the FIRST LEGO League Regional tournament, Mercy's team placed 3rd in the robot competition (they scored a 380 with the highest score being a 447), was recognized for their robot programming with a trophy, and the best part...advanced to the District competition at iSpace on January 16th.

Only 5 of the 17 teams were selected to advance.  The league is ages 9 to 14, so Mercy's all lower elementary team (with 5 of its 8 members in the 4th grade) was competing against predominately junior high teams.

Way to go LEGO League!
