ASHLAND — Four teams from the FIRST LEGO League Regional Tournament hosted by Ashland Community and Technical College will advance to the Kentucky FIRST LEGO tournament this spring at Northern Kentucky University.
Selected on the basis of their scores in the robot performance, robot design, project and core values aspects of the competition, the LEGO teams going to state are Rockin’ Raptors, McKell Doggies, Supernova and, winning first place overall, the Neptune Nerds.
This is the sixth year ACTC has hosted the tournament to provide skill-building opportunities for area youth in science, technology, engineering and math. This is the only FIRST LEGO tournament in the FIVCO area of Kentucky, and it is a qualifying event for the state FLL tournament.
