FRC Team 4451 ROBOTZ Garage of Laurens District High School, Piedmont Tech Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CAM) and FLL Team 836 of Hickory Tavern School hosted a FIRST LEGO League scrimmage on Saturday, Nov. 11.

The event was titled "Veteran's Valor Challenge Academy" and included teams from Clemson, Greenville, Aiken, and locally from Laurens District 55, Sanders Iron Jackets Robotics.

In addition to improving their robot on the mission table, teams also practiced their presentations on technical design, project, and core values.

This year's FIRST LEGO League Challenge is HYDRO DYNAMICS and is a water-based – how we find, transport, use, or dispose of it. What might become possible when we understand what happens to our water? 

FIRST LEGO League challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers. During the HYDRO DYNAMICS season, teams will choose and solve a real-world problem in the project. They will also build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® technology to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game.

Throughout their experience, teams will operate under the FIRST LEGO League signature set of core values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®.
