St. William Catholic School’s First Lego League team took top prize in one of four categories at the state Lego League championship at Parker High School on Sunday.
The team had the best robot in the state, said Bob Getka, one of the team’s coaches.
In Lego Robotics, teams have to build and program a robot. That robot has to complete as many tasks as possible in 2 minutes, 30 seconds. The St. William team completed 14 of 18 missions, Getka said.
This is the fourth time the team has been to state. Teams are awarded points in one of four categories. Although it had the No. 1 robot, it did not score high enough in the other categories to advance to nationals.
