12 Jan 2013 Robotics students code and solve, one Lego at a time
Posted on Sat, Jan. 12, 2013
For hundreds of area pupils who have been spending evenings and weekends in meetings, hovering over Legos and laptops, Saturday was the big test.
“Nobody has the wheels we have,” boasted Marcus Richardson, a seventh-grader at Benjamin Banneker Charter Academy of Technology. “When we program the robot to turn, it’s very precise.”
About 20 Banneker kids and 40 squads of robotics students from other schools filled Union Station for the First Lego League Regional Championship.
