Exploring Robotics

Academy Street Elementary School fourth-graders had the chance to learn about the expanding world of robotics when the award-winning FIRST Lego League Brainstormers team conducted an interactive demonstration.

The team, which is comprised of five fourth-graders and one fifth-grader, all from Academy, spoke with their peers about capturing the highest score on Long Island during this year’s qualifying contests and their upcoming competition, the Long Island Championship.

The students also spoke about the project they created based on this year’s theme of “Trash Trek” and showcased one of the tasks their robot can perform. Before concluding, they invited their peers to complete one of the team challenges they had faced during the qualifying contests.
