After two years of virtual competitions, the annual "Skirmish at La Salle" FLL tournament hosted by Explorer Robotics welcomed 18 teams to compete at La Salle College High School on January 7th. The event was held as a FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL) regional qualifier tournament, which enables 4 FLL teams to advance to the next level of competition at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy on January 28th.
The four teams that advanced to the Mid-Atlantic Championship were Panther Technix, Vortechs, Nuclear Fusion, and the Skirmish at La Salle champions, Wild Bots - White. Congratulations to these teams for their hard work throughout the FLL season and good luck in the upcoming competitions.
FIRST® LEGO® League provides an opportunity for children and young adults from ages 4 through 16 to be involved in a friendly robotics team competition. Every year, a new competition game theme is designed to provide participants with a fresh new challenge to tackle.
