ASCS Seniors First Lego League Team News
 
 
All Saints First Lego League Team will participate in a qualifying event this Saturday, November 17 at St. Mary's School in Ridgefield.

This year's theme is Into Orbit, a theme related to space exploration, living in space and how they can provide ideas or solutions for problems related to it.

Our team's project is about protecting the International Space Station from micro-meteorites, and using the shield as an additional oxygen generator for the living spaces inside the station.

The team also worked on the missions with a final design for the competition robot and programs to run them, using new coding techniques as block creation, math blocks and data wiring. The team has been working hard and they are ready and excited for this coming event.

We invite All Saints families to stop by at St. Mary's to cheer for the team.

Location:   St. Mary's School, 183 High Ridge Ave, Ridgefield, CT 06877
