Seven Viz girls competed recently the FIRST LEGO League Eastern Missouri Championship. The top 40 teams in the region who had advanced from qualifying tournaments met to run their robots to complete missions and present to judges in three different categories: Project, Robot Design, and Core Values. Viz 7th Graders Flora Eidson and Sofia Shah are members of the Super Solar Sisters, and Keira Makalintal (7), Jane Kramer (6), Cate Trachsel (6), Lizzy Forget (5), and Addie Kramer (4) make up the Pixelated Pelicans. Both teams are sponsored by Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri.
Out of the 40 teams competing, ten teams received awards including the Pixelated Pelicans with the Teamwork Award.
