Buzz Robotics Club Wins Award
Posted on 11/30/2021

At the Nov. 20 First LEGO League Competition, Buzz Aldrin  Middle School’s Robotics Club won an award for one of the two best projects in the field of 24 teams and qualified for the state tournament in December. 

The First LEGO League Competition is focused on creating a hands-on experience for students with coding and problem-solving exercises. The competition is scored on three components — a research project, the design and programming of a LEGO robot, and core values presented by the team. This year’s research topic, “Cargo Connect,” asked students to reimagine the global transportation system to create sustainable solutions to the world’s transportation challenges.

The Buzz Aldrin team’s project was “Power Towers” — a series of towers installed along shipping channels, generating and storing electricity from wind and water turbines, that would serve as docking and recharging stations for electric freight ships. This would cut down on the use of fossil fuels and costs for the ships, the team argued in its presentation.
