SSTech sponsors STEM First Lego League Robotics Competition

 

 

 

As part of our dedication to  involvement in the local community, and our promotion of technology and education, SSTech is a proud sponsor of a team of local 4th-through-8th-graders participating in the FIRST® Lego® League Robotics Tournament.

Our team, the Water Warriors, recently won “Best Robot Design” and the “Best Robot Performance” awards at the qualification event in January.

Focusing on this year’s theme–Hydrodynamics–the competition offers the opportunity for the team to work out solutions to real-world scientific problems through both research and hands-on design of robots. This program combines  discovery, close teamwork, and commitment to meet challenging goals, all while igniting interest in robotics and STEM in an exciting, fun environment.
