FIRST Lego League
   
Three years ago, Dallastown Intermediate School joined the FIRST Lego League. The League engages students in hands-on STEM experiences by learning core values through a team building activity, presenting their project, and in Robot Game. In Robot Game, they code LEGO robots in LEGO Mindstorms to complete various missions.

The CyberCats and TechnoCats recently competed in a local scrimmage to prepare for a regional competition. On January 25, the two teams will travel to Penn State Berks to compete against approximately 70 teams.
