Sand Creek International students react after their Lego robot struggles to complete a task during their competition.

One prayer from this Soaring Eagles student pushes his team's Lego robot in the right direction to complete a mission.

Soaring Eagles staff provide signage as they support kids participating in the First Lego League Challenge and Carmel Community School on Nov. 5.

Sand Creek International students watch and hope as their Lego creation readies to complete a mission.

Eagle View Middle School students unleash their Lego creation on the task board and hope for a high score in the opening round of the First Lego League Challenge.

Southeast students challenged themselves over the weekend by playing with Legos! In a manner of speaking.

Participants in the First Lego League Challenge at Carmel Community School on Nov. 5 teams, pairs of two, had two-and-a-half minutes to complete missions and earn their teams points against other schools.

Each team had three rounds to complete as many missions as possible and used coding skills and teamwork to outdo their opponent.

While the event encouraged students to enjoy a fun task, kids had a quartet of parameters to follow and/or adhere to during the event.

This included Core Values, Robot Design, Robot Game and Innovation Project to “immerse children in real-world science and technology challenges,” according to the First Lego League guide. “Through their participation, children develop valuable life skills and discover exciting career possibilities while learning that they can make a positive contribution to society.”
