NBGC Participates in FIRST Lego League MA State Competition
Staff members Danny and Hugh, along with 8 Club members, traveled to Worcester, MA on December 11th to participate in the FIRST Lego League, Massachusetts state competition. Club members prepared for over 3 months to compete in the combination science fair and robot tournament. The NBGC and 29 other Massachusetts teams competed in the Animal Allies Event, as part of the robotics tournament - including the 2014 World Champion team!
At the end of the competition, the Nantucket Boys & Girls Club placed 23rd. It was a great weekend, and even greater learning experience for not only our Club members, but our staff as well. Everyone is excited to start preparations for next year, with their new-found knowledge.

Club members competed against 29 other MA based teams in the 2016 MA State FIRST Lego League Competition on Saturday, December 11th.
