San Diego has a championship robotics team! Our team won the Champions Award at both the FIRST LEGO League San Diego Qualifying Tournament held at UCSD on November 22, 2008 and the Southern California Robotics Championships held at LEGOLAND on December 6, 2008. By winning these tournaments, our team now advances to the FIRST LEGO League World Festival at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, GA. This international tournament, featuring 84 teams from 38 countries, will be held April 15-18, 2009.
We are a robotics team comprised of seven great kids ages 11-14, some of whom homeschool, as well as attend four different public, private and charter schools in San Diego County.
Some of our team members have competed in robotics for six years. We've sat in the stands each year watching other teams capture the Champions Award and we’ve been thrilled for those teams. But this year was different. This year, our name was called. We’ve earned this trip to the World Festival through so many hours, weeks, and months of hard work, dedication, and a lot of fun. We want to make our team’s dream of going to Atlanta a reality and we need help so we can participate in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It is a wonderful event that brings together middle and high school kids from all over the world to showcase their scientific and creative talents.
