Robotics Competition 2016

Saturday December 3rd, 2016, Boys and Girls Club of the Midlands hosted the First Lego League Omaha Qualifier. The plan is after the 18 teams compete, seven teams would qualify and move onto the Regional qualifier in Ashland in February. Each team that arrived was excited to compete and nervous to present. There were several teams that had competed in past years and only 2 or 3 teams that had never competed before. Four teams did not even arrive to compete. The Imagine Science team, The Silverback Scientists arrived with some presentation practice under their belts. They had been at the STEM Showcase two weeks earlier and won the presentation competition. It was a fun, interesting, and a great learning experience for everyone involved. Way to go Silverback Scientists who won the Judge’s Award trophy due to the team’s fight, courtesy, and constant ‘never give up’ attitude.
