Calvert Shines at LEGO Robotics Championship

Calvert County students showed off their engineering and programming skills at the 2019 Southern Maryland LEGO Robotics Championship, hosted by the College of Southern Maryland at the LaPlata Campus on April 6, 2019. The competition consisted of 31 elementary schools and 17 middle schools from the tri-county area. 

Dr. Daniel D. Curry, Superintendent, said, “Preparing for this competition is a fun way for our students to learn valuable STEM skills that will transition to higher-level courses.”

This year’s challenge theme was “Nature’s Fury.” Teams used LEGO Mindstorm/EV3 robotic systems to build robots and earned points for each task the robot successfully completed. In addition, teams completed a research project related to the challenge.
