The TCMU FIRST LEGO League has brought home a trophy in the project category the last three years. They qualified to participate at the state level 2 of the last 3 years. Last year, they finished 3rd in robot performance at the qualifying level!

FIRST® LEGO® League gives students the chance to develop, design, build, and code MINDSTORMS® EV3 robots to perform autonomous “missions” on a themed playing field and design innovative solutions to a real-world problem inspired by the theme. With the guidance of two or more coaches, teams apply science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts to solve a real-world problem. This year's theme is CITY SHAPERS.
