At Sedgwick School, we have an AWESOME Lego Robotics team. My husband and I are the coaches, and this will be the 2nd Track Meet we'll be attending. At the Track Meet, the kids build robots in the following events: Fastest Robot, Strongest Robot, Slope Climbing Robots, Table Clearing Robots, A Delivery Robot Mission, A Speed build, A Bridge competition, and a the new event which is a Lego Robot Steeple Chase. Last year, our team came home with 5 trophies, and tied for 1st place overall. We have also come home with 1st place in project and innovation prizes at the First Lego League Maine Tournament 2 years in a row! This year our school has budget problems, as our budget is about $200,000 short, and we need money to send these kids back to the Track Meet! It's $35 per kid and we can have up to 10 kids on a team. We also need team shirts and that's usually around $150. Help these kids become the engineers of tomorrow! They're too talented to stop now! Any amount is appreciated!!
