UPDATE: Rock Spring, Rossville Middle students win at state robotic competition

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: We have a happy update on the rRock Spring Elementary "Robo Rockets," the students at that Walker County School, who entered the robotics competition at Georgia Tech last weekend.

We followed them last week as they were practicing for the contest.

We're pleased to report that they won best mechanical design at the first Lego League Tournament.

Congratulations Rock Spring Elementary, on winning that statewide award.


The Rock Spring Elementary Robo Rockets, proud members of the "First Lego League," are state-bound. 

They participated in the Northwest Georgia Regional Tournament at Saddle Ridge, then advanced to the Super Regional tournament in Acworth. Now, they, along with one team from Rossville Middle School, are advancing to the FLL State Tournament at Georgia Tech this weekend.  

Assistant principal Melissa Lemons said, "We not only program and run the robot to complete missions, but we also focus on Core Values.  Our team emphasizes teamwork, gracious professionalism, respect, and simply having fun."    

Community involvement is another huge part of the program.  "We were fortunate to have Roper and TVA supporting us this year.  TVA purchased the robots for us and the mat that the robot runs on," according to Ms. Lemons.
