FIRST Lego League 2017: Hydro Hydras
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a robotics program for 9 to 14 year olds which gets them excited about science, technology, and innovation, while teaching them valuable employment and life skills.
Here are Some Highlights from our Research Field Trip to the Abingdon Farmer’s Market!

Competition Day at ETSU, December 2017
The team meets with the Robot Design Judges, showing off what their creation can do.
The Hydro Hydras hash out the Core Values challenge. While they deliberate on the group challenge they just heard, the judges observe them and discern whether using the Core Values is their default setting.
