On Saturday, February 3rd, Gerstell Academy Lower School students participated in the FIRST Lego League competition held at Prince George's Community College. The students were judged in three areas: Robot Design, Project Presentation, and Core Values. The all day program included critical thinking as students designed and programmed a robot, developed a 30 second commercial, and competed on the match tables to complete 5 missions to earn points. Ms. Kathy Krcma, Lower School Technology Teacher enjoyed her role as mentor, teacher, and coach. Her guidance and calm confidence helped the team to achieve a very respectable 5th out of 18 teams in the robot competition. Also, the team wishes to thank Ms. Megan Jothen, Director of Educational Technology for her support along with the support of the Upper School community service helpers.
