The Grayson County Middle School “Cougarbots” Robotics Team competed in the 2015 WKU First Lego League Trash Trek Challenge.

Each year, First Lego League teams undertake a two-part challenge based on a real world topic. This year, teams participating in Trash Trek explored the world of trash via the project and robot segments, all while operating under the First Lego League set of core values, emphasizing teamwork and sportsmanship.

Teams built and programmed an autonomous robot using a Lego Mindstorms kit to solve a set of missions on a playing field.

The GCMS team brought home the award for Best Robot Design out of the eight schools participating.

Thanks to GCMS Cougar Zone, Circle M Automation, and Midpark for their sponsorship.
