Nine students from the Lenihan Intermediate School Lego League team presented their work to the Noon Optimist Club on Nov. 19.
Led by Lenihan Extended Learning Program teacher Vanessa Engel, the team talked about preparing for this year’s First Lego League tournament and displayed the robot they built and programmed for this year’s contest. The tournament is Dec. 5 at Marshalltown Community College.
The fifth and sixth graders are also coached by Connor Reynolds. The team meets three times a week either before or after school to work on the robot and other portions of the competition.
Members of the team include Locke Bloomquist, Connor Hugen, Jose Alvarez, Elexus Ocasio, Derek Peng, Ashten Finders, Marcus Barker, Lilly Duff and Josh Reynolds.
