HOUSTON (Covering Katy News) – One of the fundamental building blocks of life meets one of the fundamental building blocks of fun at the FIRST Lego League Jr. robotics competition at the George R. Brown Convention Center April 19 – 21.
Five teams comprised of nearly thirty students from Harmony Public Schools’ campuses in Houston and El Paso won their regional championships to advance to this week’s World Festival. The teams will compete against each other and more than 6,000 teams from around the world.
This year’s competition, AQUA Adventure, encourages students to explore water use in their homes and communities and how to improve the water’s journey. Team models are created and programmed using Lego Education WeDo kits and the AQUA Adventure water pump. Each team competes in a regional contest prior to appearing in Houston.
Harmony Science Academy-Sugar Land has three teams: WaterWise, Aquabots, and HSA-12Team; Harmony School of Excellence-Houston fielded Team WaterWise; while the Golden Tigers Jr. team will represent Harmony School of Innovation-El Paso in its rookie appearance.
