The Oro Grande Classical Academy and Thunderbolt Middle School Mighty Minions robotics team traveled to Yuma for the FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge - Arizona Regional Qualifying Tournament. 

Friendly competition is at the heart of Challenge, as teams of students ages 9-16 engage in research, problem-solving, coding, and engineering – building and programming a LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Prime or LEGO® MINDSTORMS® robot that navigates the missions of a robot game. As part of Challenge, teams also participate in a research project to identify and solve a relevant real-world problem.


They returned as the Tournament Champions and will be going to the Arizona State Championships in January!!

Thank you to Coaches Molly Hooks and Tara Smith! It’s STEM-tastic!
