SISCL/NYCID Robo Eagles Build Momentum in Second Tournament

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- The cafeteria of IS 51 was jam-packed Saturday as some 200 students from Staten Island and Brooklyn competed in a day of head-to-head challenges with their Lego-based robot creations for the qualifying round of the annual FIRST Lego League (FLL) challenge.

Teams of students, including The SISCL/NYCID Robo Eagles put their colorful creations -- ranging in size from four to 12 inches -- through their paces on table-size white game-boards marked off with blue lines. The kids steered their robots up and down the game-board, pausing them to accomplish tasks such as clearing debris and saving animals from pollution.
