First Lego League Robotics

The Hay Springs robotics team competed on Saturday, January 28th in Gering at the First Lego League qualifier. The team had a great day of sharing what they learned with judges and running their robot program. The “Bionic Hawks” put in a good showing, but not quite good enough to advance on to the state competition.

Their project build idea was a robot to clear ice from power lines. They interviewed with Craig Housh from Northwest Rural Public Power District to learn more about the problems power lines face during winter weather and Craig Z. from University Nebraska Lincoln to learn about what approaches are being taken currently to keep power lines in working order. The last few moths have been spent studying how electricity is made and delivered to houses. When not busy with that they’ve been building and programing their robot to accomplish the tasks they were assigned.

The “Bionic Hawk” team members are Preston Kelly, Elly Reimann, Grant Wellnitz, Riggen Binger, Jacob Dorshorst, Jax Cuny, and Jayna Cuny.
