Robotics teams from Imogene Gideon, Anna May Daulton, Janet Brockett, and Willie Brown Elementary Schools participated in First Lego League qualifier competitions this past weekend. All teams performed very well. The Willie Brown team earned the opportunity to participate in a second qualifier tournament on January 17.

We are very proud of all of our teams!

Reports from Brown and Brockett Robotics Teams!

The [Brown] Eaglebots 1 Team are going on for the next qualifier on January 17th! Go Eaglebots!

Finishing strong, The [Brockett] RoboLions, a fellow all-fourth grade team, competed in their first 2014 FLL World Class Qualifying Event with spirit, drive, and dedication! Their gracious professionalism and hard work is a testament to what they achieved this past Saturday. The team finished in the middle of the pack taking 18th position after competing against 27 other seasoned teams. They did not let the other team’s size or experience deter them from securing a solid position in the Robot games. I see a number of talented young men and women who are well on their way to more successful robotic competitions. The future is a rainbow of beautiful tomorrows when you hold a dream in your heart! They’re well on their way to greater things!

FLL Robotics Qualifier Events Today

A number of Mansfield ISD robotics teams are competing today in competition at UME Prep in Dallas. More  qualifier competitions are scheduled for next Saturday.

Good luck to Brown, Gideon, Daulton, and Brockett Elementary Schools!
