Congratulations Dragons Robotics
Congratulations to the Armbrae Dragons Robotics team and their robot, R.O.B.
The team, in its rookie year of existence, participated in the
FIRST LEGO League
robotics competition. We went to the Qualifying Tournament at the IT Campus of the NSCC in Halifax with the goals of doing our best, learning as much as possible about how these competitions work, and having fun. Not only did we achieve all three of these goals, but we also advanced to the Provincial Championships, held at Acadia University on Feb 2nd, where we placed 6th out of 32 teams!
