On December 13th, Mountain View High School will host the Central Oregon FIRST LEGO League Tournament. Nineteen teams of 4th-8th graders from Deschutes, Crook, and Jefferson Counties will compete at the event. The top teams will advance to the state tournament in Hillsboro on January 9th & 10th. Details and schedule can be found on the Tournament Facebook Page and the ORTOP website.
The event is free and open to the public. The theme this year is “Trash Trek”. Teams have been working to design, build, and program their robots to complete missions that could have a positive environmental impact on our planet. Please come and watch the LEGO robots in action, and cheer on our local students.
As a 100% volunteer-run event, if you are interested in helping out please complete a volunteer interest form. Judges and other key positions are still needed. If your business would like to sponsor the event, please contact Tournament Director, Jen Floyd (firstname.lastname@example.org).
