Kids Compete in State Robotics Competition

By Kristin Martin | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Kids from all over Kentucky were at WKU Saturday for the Kentucky First Lego League's State Robotics Competition.

Forty teams participated.

Three judging sessions were based on robot design, core values and teamwork, and a project.

The teams also had three robot runs for their highest scores, and everything was based on natural disasters.

"Each person has their own strengths and values and basically we've just all come together and have all our minds to think better and have a better idea. We've also learned many things about storms and projects," said Seyan Perry, a student at Franklin-Simpson Middle School.

Locally, Franklin-Simpson Middle won second place in inspiration.

Glasgow Team Blue won first place in presentation.

Potter Gray Elementary won first place in strategy and innovation.

This was the 8th year the event was at Western.
