Local Lego enthusiasts compete in first-ever Lego Robotics League competition



LAWRENCEVILLE, Pa. - Young Lego enthusiasts showed off their talent at the first-ever Lego League Robotics competition held Saturday at the National Robotics Engineering Center in Lawrenceville.

Awards were given for teamwork, hardware, software, robot design and research.

Asha Seshan, coach of the team called “Not the Droids You’re Looking For,” said her team had been preparing for the competition since last year.

“They meet every week at our house for like five or six hours. So this is the culmination of hours and hours and hours of hard work. And win or lose, they are winners to us," said Seshan.

The group called “Brain Stem” won the completion.

The group is now off to Saint Louis for the World Championship competition.
