Two Bend Legos Robotics teams achieve high honors in a competition that improves the lives of seniors.

 

The "American Fish" team, a group of 4th and 5th graders from Cascades Academy took first place in the Garmin Teamwork Category for demonstrating their abilities to work together and communicate.

 

Lea Hart is their advisor.  "They were so proud. This is the 4th year that I’ve had a team that made it to states. And we've never done well up there. It’s very competitive because there's teams from southwest Washington, Northern California and all of Oregon. And it's really hard. These kids spend a lot of time on it. And so they weren't expecting anything. but i have to say, they just rocked."

 

The kids created a device that can help an elderly person who gets confused or lost in their own home, the device can give directions to where they want to go and keep them on track.

 

Also, the "I-Team," a team of home schooled kids from Bend took second place in the Robot Programming Category.
