The following are the results of the First Lego League (FLL) Super Regionals, held at Clayton State University on Saturday, Jan. 10.
This year’s version of the popular competition for regional young STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) whizzes ages nine to 14 was held primarily in Clayton State’s James M. Baker University Center under the sponsorship of the University’s College of Information and Mathematical Science. Directing the program was Assistant Professor of Mathematics Dr. Scott Bailey.
The competition consisted of a Championship Qualifying Round for 32 teams of regionally-local students. The FLL competition has three parts - the Robot Game, the Project, and the Core Values. The top teams from the six super regionals in Georgia will advance to the state competition in late January. The Mind-bending Mustangs of Atlanta took home the Champions Award First Place, with the Ron Clark Academy Robo-Dragons, also of Atlanta, taking the Champions Award Second Place. Locally, the Steampunk Robotic Technology Club of Jonesboro (pictured) won the Robot Design Strategy & Innovation Award.
