Mid-Season Successes for Teams!
The Mid-Stage Meritocracy is a Wrap!

Congratulations to the 10 teams that successfully participated in the second FIRST LEGO League event in Western PA! Everyone has become a pro with getting remote events to work and the 1-hour sessions went really smoothly. We’re just at the mid-point of the season now… so looking forward to seeing what people can get done for January in advance of the February Championship. It’s quite a journey!

Here are the final results from the Mid-Stage Meritocracy!

Earlier in the Season…
Blastoff Bonanza achieved Liftoff!

Congratulations to the 15 teams that successfully participated in the first FIRST event in Western PA! While the rising C-19 cases in Allegheny County added an extra challenge as the live events got moved to remote events, we were still able to conduct 1-hour sessions with the majority of teams that had signed up to give it a go! It’s still so early in the season, special kudos to those planted an early flag in the ground for their team’s season-long journey!

Here are the final results! Woo hoo!
