    Robotics Teams Advancing to State


    At the November 18 regional FIRST Lego League qualifier, three Nixa Big Bot teams (robotics teams) were selected to compete at the state robotics competition in Camdenton on December 16. They will need a few thousand dollars to cover registration, hotels, and supplies for the competition. Donate at the link below to help them make it to state. Your donation is tax deductible.
    • Coco Cats (teal): This team was selected for Innovative Solution. Their idea for solving a global clean water crisis in third-world countries truly has the potential to help improve the lives of countless people around the world. It is extremely well thought out and every team member went above and beyond to research on their own so they will all be informed and able to answer any questions the judges may come up with. 
    • Taco Tigers (tie-dye): This team was selected for Teamwork. This team overcame obstacles, made sure to include every team member in decisions, and worked hard to understand and appreciate each other's strengths and weaknesses. 
    • Storm Dragons (blue): This team was selected for Programming. The judges were impressed with the creative and eloquent programming techniques of this team made up of veterans and new members.
