On Saturday, Dec. 11, the Lincoln Lego League Robotics team traveled to Davenport with 24 other southeast Iowa schools for the regional qualifying tournament, and came home with the reserve champion trophy.
There are four parts to the competition. Each part is weighed equally and adds up for the final score. The Lincoln team, named the “Teeth Police”, did a research project on tooth regeneration gel to fulfill the requirement of doing a project that incorporates biomedical engineering. The other parts of the competition are robot design, robot performance, and teamwork.
The team will travel to ISU in January to compete in the state competition with 80 other teams from Iowa.
Members of the team are:
Front: Michael, Kristen, Clayton, Megan, Elyssa, Jamie
Middle: Kyle, Jack, Nayra, Ryan
Back: Coach Sieren, Coach Clawson, Mentor- Mike Mitchell, Mentor- Ryan.
