Congratulations goes out to our Prairie Point FIRST LEGO League Challenge Team who traveled to Marshalltown on Saturday, December 11 for their regional qualifier competition. The competition consisted of designing, building, and programming a robot that navigates a field to score as many points as possible in two and a half minutes. Additionally, they present an engineering design project of a new invention or innovative solution to a given problem.

On Monday Prairie was informed that we had one of the top robot game scores for our regional and received the “Robot Performance” award as well as a “State Advancer” award. Also, congratulations to Prairie Point Teacher Jesse Gearheart who received the “Coach/Mentor” award for this season.
