Bowling Green School Robotics Club Going to Nationals
The Bowling Green Jr. High Robotics team, “The RoboBucs,” has been honored with an invitation to compete in the First Lego League Legoland (FLL) Open International in Carlsbad, California. The BGS team, in fact, is the only Louisiana team to receive this coveted invitation. This honor was earned through the team competing against 60 teams in the First Lego League State Robotics Competition at Jesuit High School in New Orleans. At the competition, they won 1st place in Robot Design and 4th highest score in the Robot Game.
Robotics competitions foster scientific and mathematical reasoning, critical thinking, and computer programming skills. These valuable skills prepare students for future careers in the STEM field, a career field that is growing faster than any other field today.
