Two local schools are headed to the state robotics competition this Saturday at Georgia Gwinnett College.
North Hall Middle School’s robotics team took first place at its First Lego League regional competition in Blairsville and was tournament champion at its FLL super regional in Athens.
The competition consists of robot design, core values, project design (solving a community/national problem, which was hydrodynamics this year) and a robot obstacle challenge.
North Hall Middle’s winning project was a mobile irrigation system designed to take water where it’s not usually found.
Enota’s team won the champion’s award at the Creekland regional and the project and robot performance awards at the Delta Community Credit Union Gwinnett super regional.
Coached by Paul Johnson, the North Hall Middle team includes Lily Wallace, Walker Barnes, Zoe Finelli, Drew Dyer, Bowen Lewis and Trey Green. This will be North Hall's first appearance in the Lego robotics state championship.
Enota’s “Master Builders” team developed a project on how to sanitize poultry trucks that is ecofriendly and that prevents contaminated runoff in Lake Lanier. The team consists of Caroline Lee, Karis Lovell, Natalie Sykes, Molly Williams, Lily Grace Clay, Jess Freeman, Tyler Quach, Andrew Mady, Alexander Li and Hudson Everett.
