The Bellport Middle School Robotics Team will be attending a competition on Saturday February 6, 2016 from 8:30am to 2:30 pm at Central Islip High School for the F.I.R.S.T. Lego League (FLL) Regional Qualifying Tournament. The theme of the year's event is called "Trash Trek", where students learn about a variety of waste management methods. Students will be judged on their ability to design a program that could autonomously control a small robot made with Legos to perform a series of waste management tasks. The tasks are set up on a game board where students compete to have their robot score as many points as possible within 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Additionally, the students will be performing a small skit showing what they have learned about how to solve a waste problem of their choice. They will also be judged on their capability to work together as a team and their understanding of the core values of the F.I.R.S.T. competitions.
