Building a robot has turned into a teamwork and problem solving lesson for Knox County and Lynn Camp middle school students as the teams prepare for the First Robotics Lego League competition to be held in Hazard on November 22nd.

Students from the district’s two middle schools have joined together to collaborate on the competition, which has resulted in many hours after school researching and preparing. In doing so, they are reaching out to the community to demonstrate the core values of First Robotics, which focus on student development and cooperation.
