Regional Championship Bound!

For the second straight year, the STEMM Academy's veteran FIRST LEGO LEAGUE robotics team, the STEMM Stingers, is headed to the State Championship! The school's rookie FLL team, the STEMM Swarm, was not going to let the Stingers have all the fun, and earned themselves a shot at the State Championship as well!  Both teams flexed their engineering and programming muscles as they competed against 14 other top teams in the NWF region at the NWF FLL Regional Championship that was held on February 18th on the NWFSC Campus.

Teams had to place in the top seven to advance to the State Championship and the STEMM Academy teams appeared to do it with ease. The Stingers placed as the overall number two Champs, earning themselves the opportunity to compete at the Arkansas Razorback Invitational, an international competition against 71 champion FLL teams from around the world.  To top things off, the Stingers were also nominated for the Global Innovation Award for their outstanding project idea.

The FLL teams meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-6 pm in the Doolittle Building.

Ms. Kiel is the Coach.
