Lennox Middle School students recently competed and placed high in the rankings at the For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) Robotics Tech Challenges.
Students competed as part of League B: Compton-Inglewood, which includes 12 high school teams and 2 middle school teams.
The Lennox Middle School teams are called “Spicy Bowl of Robots” and “The Tech Bots.” Their season consists of 4 meets with an additional inter-league meet. The Spicy Bowl of Robots, with their consistent performance, has earned them the number 1 ranking! This means that LMS is the winner of their league, and will represent League B as the number one seed as they move into the inter-league playoffs.
If they are in the top 4 teams at this upcoming weekend meet, they will move on to the Los Angeles Region Finals. Wish them luck!
The FIRST Robotics Tech Challenge is for students in grades 7-12. Each year students who participate in the FIRST Robotics Tech Challenge are challenged with designing, building, programming and operating robots to compete in a head-to-head challenge in an alliance format. Guided by adult coaches and mentors, students develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles, while realizing the value of hard work, innovation, and working as a team.
