Students Recognized for Teamwork and Innovation at FIRST® LEGO® League Lockhart Qualifier




More than 500 spectators cheered up to 350 contestants, ages 9 to16 , at the annual FIRST® LEGO® League Lockhart Qualifier at Lockhart Junior High School today. Circuit Breakers, from Cedar Valley Middle School in Cedar Park, won the first-place Champion’s Award. The second-place Champion’s Award went to team Engineering MAJAAK, from Bridgepoint Elementary School in Austin. The third-place Champion’s Award went to team Westlake Rangers, from Eanes Elementary School in Austin. The top teams won by embodying the program’s Core Values of teamwork and mutual respect while achieving excellence and innovation in both a robot game and innovative project.


FIRST LEGO League is an international program for 9- to 16-year-old children created in a partnership between FIRST and the LEGO Group in 1998 to get children excited about science and technology – and teach them valuable career and life skills. Children work alongside adult Mentors to design, build, and program autonomous robots using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® and create an innovative solution to a problem as part of their research project. 


This year’s Challenge – CITY SHAPERSM– called for teams to research and present their own creative solutions to the real-world topic of architecture.


The competition is judged in three areas: Project; Robot Design, and Core Values, which embody aspects of teamwork and good sportsmanship. Top robot game scores are also honored.
