Students from Academy Street Elementary School were recently treated to a special surprise held in the school’s cafeteria, as fourth-grade student Darby Kaler showcased her proficiency in engineering amongst her classmates and a number of staff members. 

Darby, who is a part of the FIRST Lego League team alongside a number of other district students, recently took part in a competition held at Huntington High School, competing against 190 other teams. Due to the successes of the “Brainstormers” team, they were able to secure a spot amongst the top 40 competitors, and will progress onto the next level of competition set to take place in March. 

During the presentation held in the school’s cafeteria, Darby, along with her parents/team coaches Eileen and Bob Kaler, showcased their bots to the attendees and presented background information that goes along with this year's space-oriented theme of "Into Orbit." 

Darby’s fourth-grade teacher Kimberly Rall was able to attend the team’s competition at Huntington High School, and reported that all involved did a phenomenal job presenting.
