FIRST LEGO League Team GEar Dogs: Siddhant Dash, Tyler Eckhart, Jay Gummadi, Kiley Keup, Tyshi Olveda, Rhea Maheshwari, Vaidehi Ramachandrula, Ahana Rao, Aditya Vijayanand, and Matthew Wang are advancing to Waukesha's sectional tournament after their performance at Oak Creek Regional last Saturday. Please ask them about their project! Since September, these students have become Mars experts, Cyanobacteria researchers, and knowledgeable with converting carbon dioxide to oxygen.

We would like you to save the date for our next tournament at the Waukesha sectional on Sat., 12/15. It's a free event and fun for everyone. All are welcome. Usually the project, robot design, and core values are judged in the morning while the robot missions are over the afternoon with an awards ceremony wrapping up the day. In addition, last year's Swanson's, now WHMS team, the GEarheads will be competing there also.
