Lego League: The “Llamas in Space”

The “Llamas in Space” made a great showing at their first-ever First Lego League (FLL) State Finals at Weber State University.

The all-day event pitted our “Llamas in Space” team against 50 other winning teams from across the state. Three judged interview sessions and three rounds of autonomous robot challenges meant for a long day of heavy “Coopertition®” as part of FLL’s foundation of good sportsmanship and the focus on the journey and learning.

The judged interviews are not publicly ranked against other teams; making them a challenge to improve upon the teams’ internal goals, reaching for the best possible rankings judges can provide. Robot challenge scores are shown throughout the day on the large scoreboard. Our team proved strong, with positive rankings across all judged areas; and came out 15th of all 50 teams with the Robot Challenge itself.

We’re so proud of this team representing us at the State Finals – please watch for our Regional Champs award to show up in the trophy case soon!
