FIRST LEGO® League Team Wins Core Values Award

  • Launch News

On Sunday, our team of seven Year 7-10 students competed against other South Australian schools in the FIRST LEGO® League Competition at Scotch College.

Teams design, build, and program a LEGO® MINDSTORMS® robot, then compete on a themed table-top playing field. We are very proud to announce that the Emmaus team won the Core Values Award!

Our team displayed excellence in demonstrating the FIRST Lego League's Core values:

  • Discovery: We explore new skills and ideas.
  • Innovation: We use creativity and persistence to solve problems.
  • Impact: We apply what we learn to improve our world.
  • Inclusion: We respect each other and embrace our differences.
  • Teamwork: We are stronger when we work together.
  • Fun: We enjoy and celebrate what we do!

Congratulations to Nick (Year 8), Caleb (Year 8), Joseph (Year 10), Isaac (Year 9), Matthew (Year 8), Hudson (Year 8) and Jessica (Year 7) for this achievement, including for the 16 weeks of lunch time and after school preparation to achieve such a high standard!

A huge thank you to Mrs Mel Zybek, Mrs Nicole Hussey and Mr David Chu for facilitating and coordinating this opportunity for our students.

We wish them all the best as they travel to Melbourne this weekend to compete in the National Finals. Thanks in advance to Mr Michael Worley and Mr Paul Van Wezel for accompanying our team and to Mrs Paige Edwards for ensuring all the logistics were in place!
