Parker at the World LEGO Robotics Championship

Eighth grade students on Parker’s Sophisticated AI First LEGO League (FLL) team are participating in the FIRST Championship World Robotics Tournament in Detroit this week, where they are competing against some of the top robotics team from schools throughout the U.S. and around the world. 
This is the first time Parker has made it to this level of competition in the FLL, and the school is beyond proud of our students and teachers for their efforts this season. Congratulations to 8th graders Jake Boxerman, Colin Brown, Tassos Chronopoulos, Lucas Garcia-Sjogrim, Finn Hall, Jacobe Richard, Star Rothkopf, Ryder Selikow and Tess Wayland. Also, many thanks to teachers Adam Colestock, Adrian Leo and Jen Marshall for mentoring these students, as well as all our Middle School FLL team members throughout this past year.
