Lincoln Elementary students recently competed at the First Lego League Championship in Ames. Ten 5th grade students competed in this robotics competition which showcased their problem solving, teamwork and robot programming skills. Science instructor Joe Pisarik explains that the robot had to complete some tasks which were worth different point ammounts.
He adds, another part of the competition was aimed at helping others. His group built water filters, which were sent to Cuba to help 25,000 with a cholera outbreak.
Pisarik adds that the kids enjoyed the experience and he thanks John Deere and Hays Pure Water For All for their assistance.
