BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. – On Saturday a local high school hosted a regional FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Qualifying Tournament.
The event was held at the Ballston Spa High School. The district's seven teams competed with over 20 teams from schools throughout the region.
This year's challenge was called “Nature's Fury”, which required students to design a LEGO robot that could be programmed to operate independently on the competition table. The LEGO robot also had to accomplish a number of weather related tasks.
The winners qualified to compete at the Hudson Valley FLL Championship Tournament at Dutchess Community College later this month.
