Two robotics teams compete head-to-head with the autonomous LEGO MINDSTORM robots they programmed to perform specific functions as the judges watch. The teams were competing in the Tulsa FIRST LEGO League qualifying event Nov. 10 at Memorial High School. The robots carry out the functions on a 4 by 8 foot surface. The FIRST LEGO League is a robotics program designed to get children excited about science and technology while teaching them employment and life skills.
