Robo Gophers Head for Lego League State Championship

CONGRATULATIONS to the ROBO GOPHERS!!!

They’re on their way to the
STATE CHAMPIONSHIP!

On Saturday, February 5th, the
Stone Robo Gophers competed in the FLL East Coast Regional Championship at Cocoa Beach Jr./Sr. High School! They competed against 28 other schools from all over Florida.

Stone Robo Gophers won the “JUDGES AWARD”! During the course of competition the judges may encounter a team whose unique efforts, performance, or dynamics merit recognition. Our Stone teams are definitely set apart from the other teams in an unique way. This award recognizes the most remarkable team and the judges favorite team. They always have the Gopher Mascot at the competitions. Everyone definitely knows their Spirited Team and they engage the other teams and spectators in their enthusiasm and fun. THEY ARE THE GOPHERS!! They are honored to have won this award.

The team bids for going on to the Florida STATE FIRST LEGO League Championship were also awarded. To move on to State, teams need to score high enough in all 4 categories of Robot Design & Performance, Project/Research Presentation, Teamwork, and most importantly Gracious Professionalism, to be one of 10 teams with the highest overall scores.
Stone Robo Gophers were chosen to move on to State because of their excellent performances in all 4 of these categories!!!! They are so excited, this is such an awesome accomplishment! There are over 400 teams in Florida this season.

The Florida State FIRST LEGO League Championship will be on Sunday, February 27th at the Clemente Center at Florida Tech. The
Robo Gophers will be competing against 46 other teams from all over the state of Florida. Florida Tech is just down the street, so you can come out and cheer them on! They would love to have a large supporting audience all dressed in ORANGE & BLACK!
