The Dragon Slayers

Gus and his Lego Robotics team participated in their first Shocker MINDSTORMS Challenge last weekend. It was a full day of trial and error and success. Two of their three robots completed their challenges with bonus points for speed. And at the end of the day, the Dragon Slayers took 3rd place out of 15 teams! Not too shabby for a bunch of beginners. Plus, they won an award for best display and team notebook. They may or may not have had some professional guidance on that part. :)

This was the 1st place trophy. Pretty sweet Lego dragon.
