(Franklin, GA) — The first ever Robotics team at Centralhatchee Elementary School enjoyed a great season with strong efforts in two competitions during this school year.

The team won the ‘Champion Award’ at the First Lego League Robotics Competition in December which qualified them to compete at the Super Regionals at Clayton State College in Morrow, GA on Saturday, January 11.

The young team improved at the Super Regional but came up just short of making the State Competition.

FIRST LEGO League (FLL) introduces young people ages 9 to 14 to the fun and excitement of science and technology while building self-confidence, knowledge and life skills.

While the program involves LEGO robotics, FLL goes far beyond robotics, with teams examining real-life problems and developing innovative solutions.

Through the robot game and project, FLL emphasizes the FLL core values including teamwork, problem-solving, friendly competition, sharing, discovery, and gracious professionalism.

Each year, FIRST LEGO League releases a challenge-based on a real-world scientific topic. Each challenge contains three parts including, the “robot game,” “the project” and “core values.”

Students participate in the challenge by programming an autonomous robot to score points on a themed playing field during “the robot game” and developing a solution to a problem they have identified during “the project,” all while following the core values.


  1. Super proud of the team! So grateful for people who dedicate their time to this cause for our kids.
