Toledo Elementary Lego Robotics Team Travels to Portland…

The Toledo Elementary Lego Robotics team competed at the FIRST Lego League State Tournament in Hillsboro on January 14th.  From left to right: Robert Wagner, Finley Miller-Morgan, Ahren Harris, Mason Chamberlain, Daniel Roeser, and Halli Lane-Skauge.

Toledo Elementary Lego Robotics team went to Intel Oregon First Lego League Championship Tournament on January 14 in Hillsboro. Students were invited to the event after they won in a project design category at a qualifying event. Only 30% of teams who qualify are then invited to attend the State level tournament. Toledo Elementary students came up with a real world scenario based upon solutions they developed to assist with wastewater treatment using recycled plastic to line pipes.

The team has been meeting since September and working on their project. Members include Robert Wagner, Finley Miller-Morgan, Ahren Harris, Mason Chamberlain, Daniel Roeser, and Halli Lane-Skauge who are all fifth graders except Mason who is in 4th grade.

When asked what was your favorite part of Lego Robotics?
Ahren Harris, “I liked watching the other teams’ robots at the competition and reading about their projects.”
Mason Chamberlain, “I liked being the pit and programming at the competition, seeing how the programs work.”
Robert Wagner, “Being together with everybody.”
Finley Miller-Morgan, “I liked reading all the other projects. I went around and asked and they had some pretty cool ideas, like controlling the water with your phone.”
Daniel Roeser, “Being able to explore the world of Lego Robotics and programming.”
Halli Lane-Skauge, “Learning how to program, and learning new and interesting things about our problem. I didn’t know that it was actually possible to make pipes out of recycled plastic.”

What is one thing you learned?

Ahren and Mason, “How to program.”
Daniel, “How to program a Lego robot.”
Finley, “About teamwork and how we can use all our skills and what we know about Legos, and we can all pitch in with our skills and build a robot.”
Robert, “I learned that there’s multiple different ways to make stuff out of Legos, instead of just normal things. I know about the Lego Robotics brick, but I didn’t know how in depth and big you can make your robot.”
Mason, “Having your Legos and robots together is really cool. And I think programming is really fun.”

Lincoln County School District is proud of our students engaging in these activities. Superintendent Tom Rinearson shared that the “students are the future engineers and problem solvers” and he is impressed that, “our youth are coming up with some innovative solutions to today’s issues. I’m glad they had a good experience at the championship and had a chance to share their design at the state level.”

Toledo Elementary Students won a participation medal for the team and all hope to be back next year.
